Not a large exhibition (but then diamonds are not very big!) but well worth seeing. The value of the items on display must be enormous!

This place is definitely worth investing some time in. The collection of crown jewels they have there is of great historical importance, similar to the one in the Tower of London. In a way it was very sad to see the crowns of the last emperor of Russia and his wife, but I was glad these pieces survived the revolution... More

Although the exhibition is rather small what you get to see will mesmerize you. I never saw anything like it. Huge diamonds with history. I would visit it again! Recommended.

For anyone that likes diamonds and other precious stones and metals this is wll worth a visit. We booked for late in the day so there were not too many visitors, we were therefore able to view the contents without too much effort.

I was completely mesmerized by this exhibition. Perhaps I am a little unusual in that I was enchanted to see so many beautiful diamonds displayed in one place!

Raw, polished, and cut diamonds in „bucket loads”, followed by spectacular imperial jewels that outshine the London Tower treasury “hands down”. An impressive collection of golden nuggets completes the set, making the Diamond Fund an exhibition with no match anywhere in the world.
