Diamantmuseum (Diamond Museum)

Did you know that diamond-cutting was first invented in Bruges more than 500 years ago? This is just one of the many aspects of the history of the diamond that you will learn about in the Bruges Diamond Museum. You will discover even more secrets during the daily diamond-cutting demonstrations, which show you how the gems are cut.
