Amazing place, that take your breath away. All sort of cristalls to be viewed and how jewellery is made. 3 Curios shops . awesome view outside when you buy a pack and pick up your own polished stones.

More of a store with a small museum then a museum with a gift shop. With that said they had lots of examples of African gem stones so if you are looking to buy while you are here this is a great spot to shop....More

Totally unexpected, this is a breathtaking display of the finest, and in some cases the world's largest, crystals we have ever encountered. A large part of the stunning collection is free viewing, there's a grotto that winds through crystals as they would be discovered underground...More

It is a pretty small gallery where you can choose any quantity of gemstones (pebbles) in their small garden. You will pay 60 N$ for the biggest (small) plastic bag and you can fill it of any colour and shape. It was a big fun...More

Part of this modern gallery is designed like a mine tunnel with lots of different crystals showcased. There are hugs displays and the gift shop sells jewellery etc. Good for a quiet day.

We were so disappointed by the Kristall Galerie. Yes they have some large crystals on display, but the "museum" is pretty small and to charge a fee to enter what is pretty much a group of jewelry stores is a joke. I wouldn't bother to...More

The Kristall Gallery has a collection of quartz crystals from one of the mines in Namibia. There are two floors of Tourmaline, Citrine, Amethyst etc. Two shops sell beautiful jewelry and your wife or girl friend would love some items.
