As other reviewers said, it would have been nice to see more about the actual stone-cutting process. It's more of a museum of jewellary and ornaments - but they are very beautiful. Impressive are the malachite box that Bashov based his fairytale on and a map of France made entirely of stones and gold.

The place is not big. You can see it in one hour. The ladies in charge are absolutelly friendly specially if you have some small Russian skills. But I expected a greater display of stones, jewels or how to work them. And there is not much.
