  • This museum is worth a visit for those who are interested in precious stones, most definitely. With the audio guide, you can learn a lot worth knowing about the finds and today's trade in the region but also about gemstones generally. The exhibited pieces are beautiful and worth to be amazed.

  • Visit the gemstone Museum with a group from the Palatinate. Excellent presentation, good conduct by a professional Lady. The souvenirs offered on the ground floor for sale have an acceptable price. A must for anyone who comes to Idar-Oberstein.

  • The entrance costs €7, if you want to take pictures or want an electronic info the extra costs. On four floors, many gems are located one more beautiful than the other. The various cutting techniques are represented. Artist and native of the stones are called in each piece. In the vaulted cellar, a special exhibition why is worth a visit also has is at the time.

  • Lovely building and an interesting museum, especially for anyone with some interest in stones and precious metals. There are some interactive displays that keep children busy, worth a visit.
  • Perhaps the best museum I've ever been to, certainly the most beautiful. An unimaginable collection. Very good explanations too. But only in German.
  • Fun to visit on a rainy day. Also with children
  • 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.
