The Cape Town Diamond Museum is a vibrant institution located in the heart of the city that educates visitors about the history, science and social implications of diamonds. Established in 2000, the museum is housed in a building that was originally built in 1901 as a diamond sorting house. The museum features interactive exhibits and informative displays, enabling visitors to explore the captivating story of diamonds from their formation deep within the Earth’s mantle to their transportation, cutting and polishing, and eventual display as beautiful works of art.
At the museum’s entrance is a spectacular piece – an eight-metre-long replica of the Cullinan Diamond. Visitors can learn about how this 3106-carat gem was discovered near Pretoria, South Africa in 1905. They can also marvel at its nine polished diamonds, including two of Great Britain's most treasured Crown Jewels – the 530-carat First Star of Africa and 317-carat Second Star of Africa.
In addition to its permanent collection, the Cape Town Diamond Museum regularly hosts rotating exhibitions by world-renowned jewellery designers and diamond cutters. These exhibitions provide insight into traditional artisanal craftsmanship as well as more modern diamond production techniques used today.
The museum also offers educational programs for school children aged 9 to 16 that explore topics such as geology and sustainable development. The programs are designed to inspire young people by connecting them with nature and teaching them how humanity has worked with nature over thousands of years to create beautiful gems like diamonds from deep within our planet’s core.
Furthermore, there are special walking tours available where visitors can explore Cape Town's historic diamond district and experience first hand what life was like for those who worked in it during the early days of diamond mining back when gold rush fever swept across southern Africa in 1870s and 1880s.
With its fascinating blend of artistry, history, science and culture, the Cape Town Diamond Museum offers something unique for tourists looking to gain an insightful appreciation into one of nature's most precious gifts: diamonds!
