“A must visit in Malaga”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

We had a personal tour of the museum by one of the owners who was extremely informative and a even if you had no real knowledge he made it very interesting. The tour lasted well over an hour which was one of the best we have spent in any museum. Would recommend this when you visit Malaga.

“A true delight”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

From the welcome given by one of the owners of this private collection to the superb restoration of a Spanish merchants house, this is an visit not to be missed. There is something for everyone as this is not only a collection of glass there is also furniture, porcelain, pictures and furniture, being able to examine stained glass church windows at low level is indeed an experience. The collection is not overwhelming so there is no feeling of overload. It is easy to see the progression of glass making with some wonderful exhibits. Thank you to Ian for making this such an enjoyable visit.

“A fascinating visit”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

We thought it was the most interesting site in Malaga. It is an old palace lovingly restored by its present owners. They show you round themselves. It is furnished with items from their family homes and a wonderful collection of glass and crystal ranging from Ancient Greek through the Romans to modern glassware.

We cannot recommend it highly enough.

“A really interesting tour of Europe through the ages.”
Reviewed March 20, 2013 via mobile

We dropped in here on a day of torrential rain in Malaga, and are so glad that we made time to do so. The owner of the collection took us and one other British couple on a personal tour of the collection he has been building since childhood. Not only do you see some wonderful examples of industrial glasswork from all over the world, but the building also has furniture and artwork relevant to each period displayed in its rooms. The information was delivered in a way that was both educational and entertaining, and was even personalised to highlight pieces and styles of work that could be linked to our hometowns. We were positively encouraged to take photographs - a pleasant change from museums with formal restrictions in place - and genuinely had a great time. To top it all off, we were even invited to stay a while until the rain - by now resembling a biblical flood - had calmed down, and along with another group who had gone round just behind us we were treated to some wonderful Malagueno hospitality. We would definitely recommend this museum to anybody in the area as it has been a highlight of our holiday.
