This is an absolute gem in Malaga's cultural resurgence. Even if you think you are not interested in glass - please, please don't let that put you off. All visits are by guided tour, and for an incredibly modest entrance fee we spent a good hour in the wonderful company of Professor Ian Phillips, co-founder along with Gonzalo Fernandez-Prieto and...

We had a fabulous couple of hours being taken through this fascinating collection & beautiful building by a wonderful gentleman who had himself collected much of the glass over the years. He spoke with insight & a wide breadth of knowledge about the history of glass making right up the the present. There were examples from many eras & factories... More

So disappointed. The best part of the stained glass is English. Not what we came to Spain for. Really lovely girl showed us round - Isabella.

Gonzalo Fernandez-Prieto your host for this tour takes you around his private home and shows and explains his private collection of furniture, paintings, and his amazing collection of glass and crystal of over 3000 pieces. He is very personable and friendly, and extremely knowledgeable about glass. He has pieces in his collection which would rival that of any museum in... More

Shown round by the owner, his mixture of expert knowledge, related history and humour meant this visit was possibly the most enjoyable in recent times. Our tour was in English and gave time for photos and questions. We saw glass in all of its forms from stained glass to modern crystal with other artefacts that all had a history or... More

We had a great tour of this amazing beautifully restored building filled with gorgeous glass, china, furniture and art covering many centuries. The free guided tour was very informative. Easy walk from Malaga waterfront in city centre. Not to be missed - a real jewel!
