I can't say we expected a great deal when we found this museum, but what a delightful surprise it turned out to be.
I'm not a great fan of guided tours as a rule, but here we were so lucky to be shown around by the owner and collector of this wonderful display of glass from all periods of history. Another pleasant surprise was that the museum, while focussing on glass, is really one of decorative arts and material culture. It's in a beautifully-restored house, with glass displayed in appropriate room settings with furniture and paintings of the relevant period.
A special treat was that many of these are family pieces, and we learned the stories behind them. Our guide was immensely knowledgeable and very witty: it was a real pleasure to spend over an hour in his company (we were given the English tour, fortunately).
Seek out the location, don't be put off by the length of the tour, which passes in a flash, and go! Oh, and it's also a bargain!
