Where can I admire the rich diamond history of Antwerp?

Diamonds and Antwerp go hand in hand, but regrettably, the diamond museum closed its door recently. But no need to fear. Diamond enthusiast will always be able to enjoy themselves in Antwerp. For a while, they were welcomed in het MAS. There, a beautiful exposition regarding this extraordinary precious stone was part of their permanent exhibition. Afterwards, this exposition was temporarily replaced by the Diamond Pavilion.

What was the Diamond Pavilion?

The Diamond Pavilion was a collaboration between the Diamantmuseum Provincie Antwerpen and the AWDC (Antwerp World Diamond Centre). After all, Antwerp without a location where diamonds are put in the spotlight was unimaginable. A visit to this Pavilion underlined why this city is still called the diamond capital of the world.

It provided insight in the world of diamonds and the key players in the diamond trade and production, it showcased various breath-taking diamonds and it highlighted the extraordinary quality of Antwerp diamonds.

Starting from May 2018, DIVA Antwerp will take over this special task from the Diamond Pavilion.
