It was my first time visiting the museum and I was blown away! I didn't expect to see so many beautiful gems. They are all genuine and displayed in lovely showcases. The place is of a reasonable size and they make use of each and every corner very effectively. The explanations about the gem processes are very detailed, yet understandable too. Also, they have a mini play area for kids to experience what the gem mining process is like. There are even videos that showcase how the stones can be cut in various countries too! Moreover, the staff here are really friendly and knowledgeable about every precious stone or mineral here. They are very engaging and open to questions that anyone may have. They enthusiastically explain the technicalities of the stones in simple terms, without making you feel overwhelmed. Overall, it was an extremely educating and enjoyful time! Will definitely come back again!
i have visited privately in November 2018. the museum is an exceptional place in the world, held by people with a vast knowledge of all the various stages of the creation of minerals and gemstones down to the production of cut stones and jewelry, they offer the visitor a truly wholesome experience which can really help you achieve a different outlook on the whole subject. throughout the whole visit you feel they really want you to get as enthusiastic as them which i did i d love to come again
