Even if you're not a fan of history, you can at the very least still admire the interior of this house - it was enjoyable just to... More

Every reviewer before me was right! The museum was insanely beautiful and set up in a way that really fit the tour. The owner walks you through each room and explains the pieces, technique used to create them, and their significance in history and his life.

Fascinating tour of a private collection that is simply outstanding. Owner and collector Ian Phillips brought the collection to life. Hidden in the back streets, this is a must see for anyone visiting Malaga. Grateful thanks from Scotland!

Coming from a (former) glass making area we were delighted to hear Sunderland glass given a mention. The guided tour (in English) was excellent - our guide was so knowledgeable. We loved the William Morris stained glass window - a real surprise. One of the best attractions in Malaga

This was a unique look at a private collection of glass and ceramics and furniture with a well informed guide who also has a family story so is personally involved. Only downside was that we couldn't look around the house on our own to spend a little more time there as it is very nicely decorated.
