  • The museum is free but surprising. We've been led by the driver and the truth is that it surprised us. It starts with a video, in all languages, we have been put in Spanish. It is very didactic and we liked it. Then the weirdness begins, they explain all the jewels that there are and they give you reference of their value. And the final surprise, a huge store and tw try to sell. We haven't bought anything, but they haven't been anything heavy.

  • After watching a film about the extraction of stones in the mines, we visited this beautiful museum very interesting with many stones on display. Then, obligatory passage in the big jewelry shop where there is really something for everyone. However, we can regret the far too excessive prices of jewelry and the presence of sellers far too oppressive ...

  • This place was recommended by our tour guide. I must say I had low expectations, but damn, I was surprised to learn that it was very interesting. You don't have to be a geologist to enjoy these stunning gems. The guide speaks good English and will show/tell all you wonder about. Ofc they will try to sell you a gem later, the price tags are high but so is the quality. Entry is free of charge because of this selling later. The choice is yours however. This building also houses the world largest and 2nd largest sapphire rock on over 800kg (picture)
  • Very nice. Just expensive stones but great quality
