The Crystal clusters are huge
Feb 2020
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.

Good display of gemstone and intricate settings.
Dec 2019
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.

Expensive for very little to see
Jul 2019 • Family
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.

Excellent shop if you wish to explore and buy minerals and gems
Jul 2019 • Couples
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.

Fascinating and worthwhile visit
Jun 2019 • Couples
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.

A must-see!
Jun 2019 • Couples
The gems and stones are awesome - what beautiful colours, it is quite mind-boggling of what is on display. Expensive, but if one can afford to buy, then why not!

We had an hour to kill . And we did it in the Krystal Gallery. Nothing spectacular but an enjoyable 55 minutes. The jewelry stores were more interesting than the rest of the gallery. No photography in the stores. Cost~$1.5,
