I've little interest in glass. That being said, the tour was fantastic. The story of the museum and how 3 friends are preserving historic glass only magnifies it all (no pun intended.) We were lucky to have one of the 3 owners give us a tour. It was informative, yet fun. Our guide truly cared about all the material. For 5 Euros,and only an hour of your time, it is definitely worth the visit.

As an amateur artisan working with glass I knew this museum is a must on my list when visiting Malaga. although I knew there were guided tours in the museum, I did not expect it to be so in-depth and intimate, with a wonderful personal touch . All conducted beautifully by the curator and owner of this marvelous glass collection. I highly recommend to go, but with adults or teenagers that can appreciate the exhibit, no small children!

Went with a friend last Sunday, not expecting it to be very interesting, but how wrong i was.
The museum is in a typical old Spanish house which has been restored, and the owners live upstairs, so its more like looking round a private house than a museum, and interesting for anyone who has walked past these lovely old houses and wondered what they are like inside.
We were given a guided tour by one of the owners, a charming elderly gent called "the professor", tours are in English or Spanish at least, maybe more languages. The Prof clearly loves what he does and is very interesting to listen to, lots more to it than glass and cristal., there is a 200 year old piano, and paintings etc.

This is NOT the place for small children, unless parents are going to keep an eye on them at all times, its very stressful for the guide, and distracting for other guests otherwise. There are priceless objects here, so guests can enjoy them in their natural setting, rather than behind doors and in cabinets, they are displayed as they would be in a normal home, ie on shelves and tables, so its much more enjoyable and interesting, and you can really apprieciate the work thats gone into both the making of the glass, and the displaying of it.

Incredible value for money, cant rate it high enough.

3 gentelmen from London had wonderfull idea to share their collections with other people.
In their private museum one may see beautiful glass and cristal items from all over Europe including very old and precious ones as well as some interesting pictures and furniture.
Charming gentelman shows You round and present the history of the collection.Not to be missed! It is a little difficult to find the place but do not resign,You would be suprised be the beauty of the museum,

Tucked away in a little back alley street, from the outside it doesn't look like much of anything at all. Once inside, you pay 5 euros per adult, and wait for someone to guide you in your language, for us English. Then the most surprising part of the museum at all, your tour guide is one of the owners of the museum, and you are told as the tour progresses that the owners, who are of varied nationality, live in apartments that they had built upstairs while renovating this beautiful old home into a museum using stained glass, doors, and antique furniture from eclectic sources. Each piece of furniture has a story personal to the owners, and the many large antique portraits are of relatives. At this museum there is no reading plaques or listening to pre-recorded information, you are told in-person about the history of the glass and techniques used to make it in each period, from BCE to the modern day. Just amazing! It's small and can be done in an hour, well worth it.
