This museum is part of the owners traditional Spanish house, which is a glory in itself. We were taken around by the owner himself, who's passion about his collection was inspiring. The collection of Pre-Raphaelite stained glass windows,as well as a unique collection of glass makes this one of a kind. The museum is also a home filled with family... More

We went on an impulse and had a really interesting afternoon.The museum is housed in a beautiful old building and this was as mich a part of the visit as the displays.One of the owners showed us around and was an excellent guide. I really would recommend it to anyone who is interested in Spanish culture.

3 collectors have turned this house into a museum to show their collection of glass, ceramics, books and furniture. It is amazing - The house was gutted and renovated to a high standard. Still very Spanish and they kep the original layout surrounding a courtyard. The way the collections have been thoughtfully arranged to look as though they have always... More

We were shown around the museum by the owner which in itself was rather unusual. His passion for the museum is fantastic and we really enjoyed his explanation of the pieces on show. I really didn't know what to expect but we had a great few hours in the museum. Don't miss this when in Malaga.

Glass museum as a first rate tourist attraction? Me neither. But how very wrong. The house is a delight - saved from destruction, lovingly restored, home now to the furniture of the three gentlemen who own it - and in every corner decorative glass of all ages - ancient to modern. It's the histories that most fascinate - some bought,... More

This museum is quirky but beautiful, well worth a visit whilst in Malaga . You will see some of the finest examples of glass and crystal in this beautifully preserved Malaga home. Not only glass but the whole ambience and furniture is quite special.

Our host was one of the co-founders of the museum, Senor Fernandez-Prieto, whose enthusiasm and knowledge of stained glass and fine glass-ware in general made for an entertaining and informative visit. The building itself, a grand 18th century town house, is quite beautiful, and the collections of glass-ware are displayed alongside antique furniture, many pieces of which come with a... More

An amazing private collection. The owner shows you round and has information on every piece you see. Absolute must, when visiting Malaga.

Just the most amazing afternoon, with our own personal guide . Gonzalo, (whose private collection this is), was utterly engaging, and one of the most historically informed individuals I have been privileged to share time with. I'd like to take this forum to extend a very public ' thanks' to him for sharing his enthusiasm, knowledge and valuable time with... More
