    Nice collection gems. With the audio tour you get extra information. That is definitely worth the money. Kids love it. During our visit there was an extra exhibition on gems and insects. This shows that both the colors and patterns in the gems as in the insects may be the same. Very nice to see the agreements.

    On our trip to the Mosel, we chose to visit the Deutsches Edelsteinmuseum again, we visited it in 2013 also. The experience was just as good again, these beautiful gemstones and the things that are produced by these precious stones is totally fascinating and overwhelming. Until October 15th, there is a special exhibition on "Fligende Juwelen". The exhibition is quite amazing. Und yourselves the experience if you are on the Moselle. On our last visit, we were down in a ældelstens mine on a guided tour. It certainly can also be recommended. Check Idar-Obersteind website for more information.

  • Perhaps the best museum I've ever been to, certainly the most beautiful. An unimaginable collection. Very good explanations too. But only in German.
  • Amazing precious stones. Really beautiful. And they explain to you everything you want to know to very high level and very in depth.
  • An absolutely outstanding facility, and definitely should be on the list for anyone visiting this area of Germany. Idar-Oberstein is a wonderfully easy daytrip from anywhere around Frankfurt - a lovely and easy drive (if you can avoid the inevitable staus), and the Edelsteinmuseum as well as the Mineralmuseum are both very well-worth checking out. Can't say enough good things about it! You will run out of adjectives when trying to describe the phenomenal minerals and gems, as well as artwork, on display.
  • Any Gem lover will love this place.
  • Suprisingly great museum, extra exhibition of egg-shaped minerals. Very nice building too.
