there are only a few of you allowed in at a time and then you are locked in with some guards but you are allowed to take your time in looking at the stunning jewellery, Huge beautiful diamonds, emeralds, sapphires, beautiful intricate designs, all in all lovely.

If your a foreigner you will easy get tickets to this museum. It's very small- just 2 rooms, but interesting. They have guided tours but not sure if for English speaking persons too.

We got into the Diamond Fund by luck. We know of the complexity in booking tickets. But on the day of our visit to the Armoury with our American friends we inquired about the possibility to get into diamond rooms. We were told that if we prefered self-guided tour we were welcome to purchase tickets. That is what we did.... More

It was worth going. I have read before about long lines and how difficult to get into this museum, but as we were with a tour guide, it was easy. We didn't wait even a minute to enter. The story behind of the most attractive diamonds and whole history of this museum made this visit very impressive. It's a favorite... More
