From outside it might not look like it, but the Kristall Galerie has some of the most beautiful precious stone I have ever seen... in various colours too, and the entrance fee is very small. Me and my husband spent at least two hours looking around, and finding out which regions the stones came from. We didn't buy any and the staff left us to look around without trying to sell us some, which we found nice. We didn't like the shop as much though, they mostly had the usual souvenirs...

Located in the center of Swakopmund, surrounded by the Namib Desert is the crystal house that houses the world's largest crystal cluster. Also within the building is a "discovery pit" where you can search for tumbled and semi-precious stones, a cave and meandering tunnel where you can view a collection of crystals, the craft area where the silversmiths craft the jewelry and, of course, a jewelry boutique and curio shop where you can purchase a variety of stones and diamonds. Parking is a non-issue in the small community. Apparently there is a small entrance fee but we were with a group and paid no fee.

While visiting Swakopmund, Namibia, we stopped at this galerie. It is a large complex with several large crystal clusters, beautiful colorful precious stone rocks, and displays of jewelry. They have a large assortment of single stone jewels to choose from. I purchased a jewel and will have it set at home. The prices are reasonable and the service was excellent.

Amazingly it took me a persuading for my partner to go to the Kristall Galerie - but so glad we did. For a very minimal price , we learnt so much about the formation and location of some of earth most precious (and those no so) minerals and gems. Excellent explanations and presentations; no hard sell. It is a beautifully crafted museum with obviously tight security and highlighting some lovely beautiful gemstones viewed. An very interesting hour which my partner and I really enjoyed.

We thought it was a gem museum but turns out it was an overpriced way to showcase the Jewlery for sale. Very little of actual gems and minerals to see. There was a section for kids to pick up rocks but it was expensive to pay for a small bag. I wouldn’t recommend unless you want to burn some extra time.

There is a display outside the gallery and inside a small quartz journey. The highlight of the visit however are the different shopping opportunities. They range from high end jewelry and top quality stones to souvenirs.

Nice display of crystals and a very fair entrance price. Good shops to buy crystals / gems if you are interested. Use 45 minutes.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Kristal Galerie. This is a beautiful display of precious and semi-precious minerals/stones with explanatory texts. Minerals and stones are displayed in the raw and polished states and one gets an idea of underground conditions. The staff in the shop area are very helpful.
