The collection is great, being guided by one of the owners makes the visit really special – see beautiful pieces of glass, but also hear the stories behind (development of glass manufacturing techniques, factories, history snapshots). And there is much more than glass: the house is wonderfully decorated, paintings and furniture have also their stories, a room is dedicated to a collection of books in special editions. One of the few museums I would go back to.

Having visited the Picasso Museum (rather disappointing) my friends and I walked through the fasinating back streets to the Museum of Glass and Crystal. We spent two hours + enthralled by the owner's enthusiasim and knowledge of his wonderful collection of paintings, glass, furniture and crystal displayed simpathetically in his beautiful house. I cannot recommend this museum highly enough - make the time to visit!

I went to the museum and saw the beautiful nativity scene made of Lladro porcelain. There were 75 pieces and most of them were collector's items, since Lladro had long stopped the production on those pieces. This nativity scene was very unique in Spain. This museum is also very unique in Spain and besides the glass and crystal displays, the museum is like a decorative arts museum because there is period furniture displayed, with beautiful paintings. My favorite painting is of a beautiful young woman dressed in red, who is in the bloom of youth. She was the Marquesa de Cubas and the painting was done in Paris in the 1920's.

I came with friends and family to Malaga and we took a guided tour of the museum. Our guide turned out to be a true inspiration. The glass and crystals were amazing and his commentary excellent. I walked around with a smile on my face for the whole day. Do not miss!

A guided tour by the impassioned owner who has collected stained glass, furniture and all kinds of glassware from Egyptian through Roman to the present day. Absolutely worth every penny.
