Discover DIVA's stories on a sensory tour (only in Dutch)

Discover various tactile elements and fire up your sense of smell during the permanent exhibition 'A Brilliant Story'. The tour has been designed with blind and visually impaired visitors in mind.

What does a diamond feel like? Can you identify the gemstone by its cut parts or facets? You can touch silver jewellery and materials, immersing yourself in DIVA's glittering stories. The guide describes the diamonds, jewellery and silverware, and brings the stories to life.

The tour starts on the second floor in the Raw Materials Room. Then you will descend (via the stairs or the elevator) to the Boudoir and the Vault on the first floor, and finally, via the Atelier, the Trading Room and the Dining Room, end up in the Room of Wonder. The museum tour follows the journey of the diamond or raw material, from the mine to the finished product.
