An ansolutely fascinating tour that combines the history of glassmaking with the history of one particular house in Malaga and a personal history of the owners. Ian, our guide, was friendly, warm and engaging, always with an anecdote at the ready, and making a very special effort to ensure that my friends and I got the most out of our... More

Malaga is a walking city, and it's a nice stroll to this museum. It's a labor of love by three partners with noble ancestry, a restored villa from the 1700s with exceptional period furniture and glass. Unlike most museums, it's decorated as if someone lived there. No, you can't touch the pieces (or shouldn't, unless the guide tells you it's... More

A fascinating tour with one of the owners on how the collection came about and the history of glass. Interesting presentation linked to period furniture and on the ground floor there are display cases showing productions from the key glass factories over the years (mostly sadly now closed). The project has clearly been a labour of love on the restoration... More

As other people have said this museum/house isn't easy to find but don't give up on a wonderful 2 hour tour of the treasurers collected over the years, all beautifully displayed.

Visited here with a friend on a cold breezy day because we wanted to be indoors - next time I visit Malaga it will be on my "must do" list regardless of the weather. A huge collection of glass from all over the world and from different periods of history displayed tastefully in the owner's home. The owner was our... More

This museum is in a house that has been owned by a British family for several hundred years I believe. One of the family members gave the tour and it was fascinating. Lots to see and much beauty.

My nephew was recently visiting from Australia, so my wife and I took him to the Museo del Vidrio y Cristal, which is our favorite museum in Malaga. The glass and crystal exhibits are very beautiful and we also enjoyed the Pre-Raphaelite stained glass windows, which are the only ones in Spain. The period furniture and paintings add the glamor...
