  • A unique museum - you should definitely go!! A real find, very interesting with the added benefit of a personal guide, who was extremely knowledgeable. It’s one person’s collection, which makes it...

  • Great display of stained glass windows, glass models, ancient pottery and general artwork. Really nice colours. The old house is also laid out as it was in the past. We had a guide who was clearly interested and knowledgeable and spoke English. A very pleasant visit.
  • I decided to come here because of personal connections with some artists working with glass, so I wanted to learn more from them, and I didn't regret it at all! Not only is the collection in the museum absolutely incredible (it also includes furniture and paintings), but the owner gave us a guide, and he was one of the most amazing people I've met! Incredibly kind, passionate, full of knowledge and love for humans, a true hippie! Everyone should visit it, if not for the beautiful art itself, but for the beautiful people there. His way of building up the community of Malaga and making the art and knowledge with it accessible to everyone (the entrance fee is really a steal) was awesome, incredibly inspiring, and brought me back the belief in the inherent goodness of people. Thank you so much!! I hope I get to come back, and listen in to a concert.. and see the library being built!!!
