Our review of Diamond museum

All about diamonds

The diamond Museum is a not very large museum about diamonds. But everything about this gemstone is discussed. Including the history, sites and processing of diamonds and an overview of the largest diamonds in the world (of course replicas). Also, several famous diamond thefts are highlighted. You can also take a picture of yourself with crown and necklace of your choice and then send an email to friends.

Rather nice exhibition

The Diamond Museum has three floors, you go through fairly quickly. The exhibition is in English. And in itself is quite nice, but doesn't really convince you. It remains to 'rather nice'. The diamond Museum attracts mainly foreign tourists and is part of Coster Diamonds, a diamond merchant.

Still more old diamond factories in Amsterdam

Amsterdam was formerly a center of the trade of diamonds. There is still something about it. There are still four different diamond factories in Amsterdam. You can visit these factories and they are especially equipped for the sale of diamonds. They are: Gassan Diamonds, Amstel Diamonds, Amsterdam Diamond Center and Coster Diamonds.
