  • The amount of work (and money)put into establishing and stocking this most interesting museum is awe-inspiring. There are exhibits covering all eras and fashions with a great range of glass, Crystal and porcelain from all over Europe and elsewhere from all the major manufacturers and designers. Effort has also been made to place items in context by purchasing the appropriate furniture. Exhibits range across stained glass windows, glass and crystal ornaments and utensils as well as China and porcelain set in a lovingly restored property. The young man leading the tour was very knowledgeable and sympathetic. A wonderful experience requiring congratulation for the owner.
  • The most beautiful museum in Malaga! They give you a free tour of the selection and the house which is beautifully restored. So me of pieces blow your mind away in terms of creativity. I've never thought glass could be such a flexible medium. The historic pieces and nice too.very educational and uplifting place to visit
