This stone gallery is small, but very informative. The upstairs section has a display on a variety of royal crowns and the history on several large diamonds that have been found over time. This is a great place to spend an hour while your staying...More

There are a lot of rocks of gems on display and upstairs there is a necklace of diamonds. Sorry I didn't get the name as I got there late. Price is 10 euro to enter. Very small gallery right next to the ice palace.

Were taken to the gallery as part of the tour. Relatively small, not very interesting and not really worth the time, especially not if it is not included in a package you took.
