Diamond Museum Amsterdam Tours

star-3.5

Diamond Museum Amsterdam
Located in the heart of Museum Square, just steps from the popular Rijksmuseum, the Diamond Museum takes visitors on a journey from the diamond mine to sparkling jewelry. Few know of Amsterdam’s prominent role in the diamond trade, and the museum seeks to educate visitors about the fascinating history and craft of these gemstones.
 
The Basics
This small museum features a short film introducing the basics of the diamond craft, plus exhibits on how diamonds are geologically created, the history of the Dutch diamond trade, and the process through which these stones are transformed into beautiful pieces of jewelry. You can also watch goldsmiths and stone polishers at work creating magnificent works of art.

Get free or discounted admission to the Diamond Museum with an Amsterdam museum or sightseeing pass, and opt for a skip-the-line ticket to avoid long wait times. Hop-on hop-off tour buses also stop nearby.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • The Diamond Museum is a must-see for jewelry and gemstone admirers.
  • Be sure to visit Museum Square’s other attractions as well—such as the Rijksmuseum, Vondelpark, Stedelijk Museum, and Van Gogh Museum.
 
How to Get There
The Amsterdam Diamond Museum is located at Paulus Potterstraat 8 in central Amsterdam, a short walk from the Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh Museum. The museum is easily accessible from the Amsterdam Centraal train station via the N47 bus, or Metro Line 2 or 5.
 
When to Get There
The museum is open daily from 9am to 5pm. This attraction is less busy than its neighbors, but does get its share of visitors, so go early in the morning and book admission tickets and tours in advance to save time.
 
The Diamond Museum’s Notable Collections

The Diamond Museum houses a rich permanent collection, including world-famous pieces such as the Katana, the Rembrandt Diamond, and a diamond-encrusted Ape Skull. The collection features diamonds of all shapes and sizes, from one of the smallest diamonds in the world—barely visible to the naked eye—to replicas of some of the largest and most famous diamonds in the world.
Address: Paulus Potterstraat 8, Amsterdam 1071 CZ, Netherlands
