The staff at NWT Diamond Centre were very pleasant and helpful. The exhibitions were interesting. If you aren't interested in buying something, the visit should take less than 30 minutes. If you do want to buy something, this is a great opportunity.

Nice little tour. Saw some unbelivable stones. The gentilman was very informative. We saw some of the most beatiful diamonds, and the most valuable.
