Museum Of Gems And JewelleryFree: All time

The Museum of Gems & Jewellery is located in the historical and authentically restored 18th century building. This unique museum takes visitors on a journey from when diamonds first began to form three billion years ago and their 150km journey to the surface, following the unique path of South African diamonds from their origin in extinct volcanoes to the deposits along the coastline. Learn about unique and rare gemstones, and see how jewellery has changed through thousands of years.
