This is a good place to learn more about the diamond industry, this little museum is instructive and well made, but really is more a tour operator agency eager to sell you about anything than a true museum (although they charge for the entrance). A lot about the industry's history, but not a word on al the suffering, abuse and... More

We visited here thinking it would be of interest. It was to begin with. We started viewing a worker shoeing us how they polished the stones, to then be spoken to by a woman who said she would take us round. We then were rushed round the interesting part, where we would find out about the process and where they... More

History of diamonds and a nice display in this museum. There was a small theatre room where movie around diamonds was displayed. In the next room there were different diamond stones in display. Overall it's a good collection in display here and it gives free entrance to the coster diamonds live diamond cutters exhibition.

There are very few diamonds in the Museum. Most of the displays are Chrystal. Unfortunately, the fee to get in is real.

This was a nice museum to visit to learn about the history of Amsterdam's diamond trade. There were fabulous copies of diamond crusted crowns, jewels and a extensive information of the diamond industry in Amsterdam. A fun little place to stop by while visiting Museum square.

Nothing too spectacular here unfortunately. Thought there would be a lot of real diamonds on display here. A good history of diamonds and a good explanation of the process going into mining and processing diamonds. The best part was getting access next door where you can watch them cut and polish and set diamonds etc through glass right up close.... More

The museum is small and not really what i expected. though you learn new things about diamonds i'm not sure if it is really worth a visit if you are on a tight schedule to explore the city.

We had the Museum card so there was not an additional fee. If you don't have the card it is 10 Euros to get in. They have a short film you can watch about some diamond history and then walk through two floors of displays. If your really into all things diamonds the informational parts are not bad, but everything... More

Visited here for free with the I Amsterdam card and would have been disappointed had we paid. Adult entry without an I Amsterdam card is €10. Museum is situated across 3 floors with lift access. A lot of the museum pieces and explanatory display items are replicas and cubic zirconia. Completed the entire place in around 30 minutes. Also visited... More

Museum is very close to the major museums of Amsterdam so when you go there you can visit if you would like to learn more about diamonds. I bought tickets which cost 10 euros but if you have Iamsterdam card it is for free. It is very small museum and you need about 45 min for it. First watch short... More

Staying in Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)

Neighbourhood Profile
Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)
Top sites to see in this attractive and affluent part of town include the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum, to name but two of the highly acclaimed museums of the aptly named Museum Quarter. And if you need a break from all the fantastic art, there’s the Neoclassical Concertgebouw music hall and Vondelpark, the city’s largest park. Shopaholics and luxury brand connoisseurs will love exploring the high-end shopping destinations of PC Hooftstraat, Van Baerlestraat, Cornelis Schuytstraat, and Jacob Obrechtstraat, where even the shop window displays are of museum quality. In the evenings, when the museums close and the daytrippers head home, the area becomes a quiet oasis of calm with a sophisticated and urbane tone.
