  • כיאה לעיר היהלומים, מוזיאון היהלומים מייצג את רמת גן בצורה יפה ואסתטית. כיף שיש תרבות ברמת גן ,איפה לבקר ולהנות, ללמוד ולשזוף את העיניים. 
  • Very informative exposition, diamond production process and history, nice stones (mostly replicas as you can imagine). Morning visit is recommended to avoid line.
