Antwerp is known as home of the diamond. After he closure of the provincial diamond museum and the silver museum, the Province of Antwerp, the city of Antwerp, Tourism Flanders and the Antwerp diamond sector worked together on a new concept to present the diamont in a modern way. On Friday, May 4, 2018, they proudly presented the end result: DIVA, a museum and experience center for diamonds, jewelery and goldsmith’s work.

The new museum aims at approx. 200,000 visitors per year, from home and abroad. DIVA brings a combination of authentic objects, scientific research, historical context with relaxing stories, compelling emotions and impressive staging. DIVA houses an impressive collection of about 600 objects. She tells the long history of the diamond in Antwerp, supported by touchscreens, soundscapes and interactivity. The story comes to life in six rooms that each tell a different story.
