  • This museum also repeated it on my second trip to Málaga, the person who guides you and explains it, does so well with so much passion, that you feel really important, the collection of pieces of crockery and glass are really exquisite, almost feeling guilty to see something of such beauty, we note that glass is of the highest quality , and spectacular, visionary designs for the time, the furnishings are very refined antiques with class and good taste, just thank you for the chance to enjoy something so extraordinary and unique

  • Closed throughout August, i.e. during the period of greatest tourist influx??? Moreover, the closure is not even listed on the website. Disorganized nothing short

  • Great museum in such a quaint setting. Really beautiful property and even more beautiful collection. Some breathtaking pieces. The personalized tour and attentive guides made the experience truly memorable.
  • Quite interesting place. Different from the usual museums. One of the owners guides the visitors through the museum.
  • This is a hidden gem. an easy walk from central malaga. The glass, house and furniture are lovely, but the guided tour by the owner with history, humour and wit makes this an excellent place to spend 1 to 2 hours.
  • Really interesting history of glass and other things. We had tour by the owner. Brilliant.
  • Very interesting stories about glasses, where and how were they from. Our tour guide is the owner of the place, very nice and friendly, he gave a lot details about his knowledge of his collections.

Where to stay in Malaga

For a chance to experience the heart of the city center, you will want to stay in the area surrounding Calle Larios and Alameda Principal. This constitutes the commercial shopping district of the city and is a convenient walk to the city's main attractions and beaches. Another option is the historical city center, where an array of lively tapas bars and shops intermix with the dramatic Gothic architecture. For a true beach vacation, choose to stay in one of the hotels lining the city beach where you can soak up views of the beautiful Costa Dorada away from the hustle and bustle of the city center.
