About The Diamond Museum:
One of Amsterdam's most popular attractions - the Diamond Museum's exhibits recount 400 years worth of diamond production and lets visitors experience how a fine gem is cut and polished. The adjacent Coster Diamonds building features a diamond-making workshop, where guests can see professional cutters and goldsmiths at work.
Then there's the astounding collection itself, a menagerie of colour comprising famous pieces such as the Katana, Ape Skull, and Rembrandt Diamond. Formed over decades, it's a glistening display that needs to be seen to be believed. The Amsterdam Diamond Museum is located next to Museum Square, snuggled between the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum. Visitors can travel here by tram or bus, and visit one of the local cafes for lunch after touring the building.
