Overall Experience: 6 / 10
Date Visited: Sunday, July 13, 2008

The diamond museum in Amsterdam contains two floors of information about diamonds. Amsterdam was once known for its diamond cutting, polishing, and trading. The museum tells you about the history of diamonds in Amsterdam, as well as other places in the world. There are several displays and short movies describing the process of how diamonds are created, collected, cut and polished. There are also some displays of replicas of famous diamonds and crowns.

The museum is fairly small, but interesting. The entrance ticket also gives you free access to Coster Diamonds, where you can see live demonstrations of diamond polishing. We did not go to see this.

The museum is located close to several other museums, including the Van Gogh Museum. It is about a 40 minute walk from Amsterdam central, although several trams stop right in front of the museum.

Estimated Visiting Time

There were several short videos and exhibits. We didn't watch all of them or read all of the many stories and descriptions. Casually looking around, we spent 45 minutes at the museum.


The cost was €6 for adults, or €4 for students.
