DIVA will open in Antwerp’s historic city centre in May 2018. Antwerp Home of Diamonds: a unique public experience focussing on the magical world of diamonds, jewellery and goldsmithing. Diamonds, jewellery and goldsmithing will come together in a neighbourhood that goldsmiths, jewellery and diamond dealers have called home since the sixteenth century. In the meantime, you can visit the Diamond Pavilion and the Umicore Silver Pavilion at the MAS for a unique diamond and silver experience.
DIVA is truly an interactive diamond in the city. Here you can admire unique diamonds and learn all there is to know about Antwerp’s history as a world diamond trading centre. But you only truly enjoy this facet of DIVA after having experienced the world of diamonds first-hand. Visitors will be taken on an interactive tour that examines all the facets of diamonds, jewellery and goldsmithing.
DIVA. Antwerp House of Diamonds is located in the historical heart of Antwerp. In a neighbourhood that goldsmiths, jewellery and diamond dealers have called home since the sixteenth century. Antwerp has been known as the diamond capital of the world since its Golden Age. Merchants and explorers sailed up the River Scheldt, in ships laden with gems and precious metals to sell them all over Europe.
You’ll have to be patient a little longer before you can discover DIVA. But in the meantime, you can visit the Diamond and Silver Pavilion near the MAS for a peek at part of DIVA’s collection.

Antwerp is a pocket-sized city. Many of the attractions are within walking or biking distance of each other. Another way of getting around the city is on the trams and buses of De Lijn. Tip: buy your tram or bus ticket in a point of pre-sale (newsagent’s, supermarket, the vending machines at the various stops or in the visitor centres of Visit Antwerp), where tickets are cheaper.
