DIVA is a museum dedicated to diamonds, jewellery and silver in Antwerp, established in 2013. The museum introduces visitors to the rich history of Antwerp’s jewellery quarter, celebrating over 500 years of Antwerp diamond history. From the 16th century onwards, Grote Markt and the surrounding streets in Antwerp were the place to buy silver, gold and precious stones.
A permanent exhibition entitled DIVA, a Brilliant Story showcases over 600 diamond objects from DIVA’s collection in six themed rooms. Sets, soundscapes, multimedia and interactive elements illuminate the story. DIVA's silver collection, deriving from the former Silver Museum in Sterckshof Castle in Deurne, consists of some 1,400 silver artefacts. The museum organises silversmithing workshops and masterclasses in its ultra-modern workshop.
