Excellent, if you are interested in gemstones
Feb 2021
I really liked this, there are lots of gemstones to look at and upstairs they have replicas of many of the most famous gemstones including Marie Antionette's diamond necklace and Queen Elizabeth's crown. The place is quite small (only 2 rooms) and shares a building with a comic museum, which is a little odd. The ticket costs 10 euros and gets you into both. The ticket is a little expensive, but is well worth it if you are interested in this kind of thing. I was the only person in there so you do it a good chance to have a close look at them, which you certainly do not get if you go to the Tower of London to see the original.

Interesting

Decided to have a look, it isn't huge, but it is well set out. 10 euro per person as an entry fee.
Doesn't take long to check everything out, but the information is provided in 4 languages for each gem, plus a story for each one.

Well Stocked Gemstone Museum
Aug 2016 • Family
I have visited this museum a number of times and each time I find a new gem. The displays are very informative and the friendly staff is most knowledgeable and are eager to answer your questions

Small but interesting place
Jan 2016 • Couples
This stone gallery is small, but very informative. The upstairs section has a display on a variety of royal crowns and the history on several large diamonds that have been found over time. This is a great place to spend an hour while your staying at the Ice Castle, as it is right across the street.

Small, outdated and overpriced
Feb 2015
I have visited this place couple of times some 10 yrs in between the visits. The only difference was the entrance fee that had raised. The stones could be presented in much more interesting way as there are real gems (pun intended!) there. I wish they would have more experienced and inspired staff to share the knowledge. Serious facelift is needed. You really have to love the minerals to think this is worth the visit.

A Gem!
Dec 2013 • Family
A wonderful collection of many different gemstones and mineral samples. With each item on display, there was information on composition, mining locations, uses and trivia/history. There were several replica crowns, but the genuine Finnish Royal Crown (King of Finland) was on display (was never used because Finland became a Republic). We were lucky to be there at the end of the day, so it wasn't very crowded. An easy walk from the Kemi hotels (eg Cumulus).

Something old and something new
Jun 2014 • Family
Suitable place for families, but not with children under three years old, because there are lot of small gems for little fingers to catch.

There are a lot of rocks of gems on display and upstairs there is a necklace of diamonds. Sorry I didn't get the name as I got there late. Price is 10 euro to enter. Very small gallery right next to the ice palace.

Not really worth the time
Mar 2014 • Friends
Were taken to the gallery as part of the tour.
Relatively small, not very interesting and not really worth the time, especially not if it is not included in a package you took.

Expensive for what you get
Mar 2013 • Family
I am a gemstone-lover. Thus, I was really looking forward to the gallery. However, the 8 Euro entrance fee is not worth it. The gallery is very dated, and the stones are set up within a glass box- much like how you would expect a stuffed animal to be. The information provided is very basic. There are, however, some exquisite specimins to be seen. The highlight is probably the replica of Marie Antonnette's 647-odd diamond necklace.
