The Diamant Museum Amsterdam (“Diamond Museum Amsterdam”) is one of the prime diamond spots in a city that has been one of the top 5 centers in the diamond trade for centuries. The museum is located on the Museumplein so it’s easy to combine with the Van Gogh and such. It is also next to Coster Diamonds.
