“SOOOOO PRETTY!!”
Reviewed 31 December 2011

A lovely, interesting and beautiful place to visit! Loved to see the process in the making and all the crown jewels etc.

It was amazing to think that they start off so big and end up 1/3 the size, but so beautiful. It was a shame we couldn't see a cutter in action.

I was quite surprised that they sold fake diamonds in the shop, but I suppose they have to cater for all purses!

“good for a school trip”
Reviewed 16 October 2011

lots of facts and information about diamond extraction, polishing, gem cutting etc. Good videos and interesting maps - my geography improved immeasureably tring to identify various locations in order to hear the spiel about the diamonds found there! Highly educational but a bit trite at the same time with lots of famous diamond-wearers, diamonds-are-a-girls-best-friend references and various crowned heads wearing tiaras. If you want your beloved to buy you a diamond, go to Coster Diamonds and pop in here, but probably not worth a visit otherwise unless the Van Gogh or Rikjsmuseum queues are overwhelming! Entrance is free with the Amsterdam Card available at the museum shop across the road.

“Very interesting”
Reviewed 24 February 2011

I managed to persuade my other half to take me to the Diamond Museum. It was very interesting learning how they are cut and where they started out. I would definitely recommend it and walking through the shop afterwards is every girls dream! Unfortunately, I didn't get a diamond but I'm crossing my fingers for next time haha.

“Free on the Amsterdam card, very near the Van Gogh and Rijkmuseum.”
Reviewed 5 January 2011

Apart from the above, quite boring and dry. Only for those who love diamonds.
