This was my first visit to the glass museum in Malaga and I was really looking forward to it (as an amateur glass collector) However the museum is a bit confused about what it wants to be - there is much focus on the old house and its history in which the glass/crystal collection is housed, rather than on the...

Just spend a fabulous hour and more in the company of a truly delightful gentlemen - who just happens to be one of the three friends that bought, renovated and opened this delight of a "museum" - who has an obvious passion for sharing his collection. Lovely glass (stained, cut, polished, blown, moulded) displayed in a beautiful home that has... More

On paper, not the most interesting of subjects, but what a wonderful surprise. The museum is housed in a beautiful old villa in a quiet part of the city. A guide takes you round and fully explains all the displays. There is pottery, paintings and furniture as well as glass and crystal. We had the enthusiastic and passionate Ian guide... More

An unusual and interesting museum well worth a visit. I've just spent nearly two hours in this quirky and delightful museum with a charming guide who although new was knowledgeable and informative. She spoke excellent English and it was an enjoyable experience. The museum has an excellent collection not only of glass but furniture, paintings and other works of art.... More

This is a guided tour around an extensive personal collection of furniture and glassware. It helps to have a personal interest in crafts but regardless the guide (one of the inhabitants of the house) brings enough passion and knowledge if you are lacking. Of particular interest are the vibrant back-lit stained glass windows, and the small collection of ancient glass.... More

Interesting place with a personal tour from one of the three people who restored the building and created the museum from their own collections. Well worth visiting just to see the inside of the building which has been thoughtfully restored. The tour guide was very knowledgeable about glass and it's history was interesting to learn. Much of the museum had... More

Displayed in a beautiful mansion, this collection (much more than just glass and crystal) is fabulous! Our guide for the English tour was Ian, who told fascinating stories and was incredibly knowledgeable. He made the visit interesting and entertaining. I learned so much! Very well worth your time. Turned out to be a highlight of my trip.

I wasn't drawn to the place to see a glass collection - I had read about the house that holds the collection and thought it a must see for me. I wasn't disappointed. An 18th century mansion complete with full rooms of furniture/books as well as the extensive ' history ' of glass this is a unique treasure. The founder... More

An amazing collection of artifacts of exceptional quality and beauty. I most definitely wouldn't consider myself an appreciator of museums or arts but this special place may have to take the credit for leading me down a new path.
