Not the easiest place to find, but persist as you will be well rewarded. Situated at the top end of the 'Larios' area this private museum has very little in the way of government support or funding, but the enthusiasm and knowledge shown by the three owners put it into a class of its own.
A nominal €5, €3 if you are a pensioner, entitles you to a guided tour of the museum by one of the owners, in English or Spanish. The first delight is to appreciate the work and care that has gone into the property housing the museum. It is one of the old 'Palacios' of a wealthy merchant, or aristocrat of Málaga that was derelict and had to be totally restored. Its main feature is a delightful 2 storey inner courtyard/atrium. Around this are the various rooms housing the collections that the owners have acquired over many years, some of the displays are in the form of room settings. There is even a first floor level garden that had formed part of the original palacio.
Everything from coloured glass Church windows to domestic glassware and glass art objects that go back to Roman times are on display. Much of the furniture and carpets are from their collections too.
Do take the time out to visit this delightful museum, you will not be disappointed.
A note: this museum is usually closed during the month of August, but open Monday to Sunday 11:00am to 7:00pm.
