A great place to visit, excellent staff and really worth a visit. The tour is good and the exhibits ok but could do with being updated. Nice cafe and all easy to get there by bus or car.

Worth the trouble of trecking across the city to find it. An excellent guided tour and practical demonstration. The area around the museum is also interesting.

My partner and I did the guided tour which was amazing. I know very little about jewellery and have never had much interest in it but this tour was so interesting and informative that it had me hooked. Would recommend to anyone regardless of age or level of interest. An hour well spent.

My friends and I really enjoyed visiting this museum. It's unique selling point is that visitors can step back in time so easily. The guide was incredibly knowledgeable and made the whole experience come alive! I would thoroughly recommend this!

A fascinating view of a family run jewellery factory preserved in time, with an informative and helpful guide, this museum is a great way to spend the time.

A wonderfully informative tour. Lots of time to look around and because the group was small one was able to ask questions. Well worth the entrance fee .
