The Diamond Museum

The closest of the museum ensemble to the Rijksmuseum is the Diamond Museum of Amsterdam, the only museum of its kind in Europe and one of the few in the world. The Diamond Museum Amsterdam was established in 2007 by Mr. Ben Meier to educate the world about the fascinating and mystical world of diamonds. Mr. Meier was a well-known diamond polisher himself. He was known for polishing many priceless diamonds including the diamonds for the watch of Her Majesty the Queen Juliana of the Netherlands.

He firmly believed in maintaining the quality of the diamond craft and he was convinced that the best way to keep this craft alive was to educate people about the wonderful world of diamonds. The museum’s current director is one of the most renowned experts in the field of diamonds and is determined to inform the world about the diamond craft and everything it encompasses.

Today the Diamond Museum receives more than 75.000 visitors a year who marvel at the beautiful collection of diamond artifacts and crowns and learn about the magical world of diamonds. Description / More Diamond Museum
