It doesn't take long to visit this Crystal gallery but it is very nice and also has 2 nice shops, one cheap and cheerful and one with beautiful jewellery. Worth going if you have time in Swakop, even if you are not a geologist

Interesting venue with attached shops. They have a lot of kristals and such. I missed a bit more on the how they are formed but over all rich collection. The attached shops are high end but prices seemed to be ok, they have nice stuff for sale.

I was not overly thrilled at the thought of going to the Kristall Galerie but I was pleasantly surprised at how interesting it is. I highly recommend. The crystals are beautiful and have been thoughtfully displayed. There are information labels in English.

We were taken here as part of a QM2 excursion. If you are into minerals and gems, this will make a very interesting visit. It is very modern and clean, well presented, the staff are helpful and friendly and there are lots of opportunities to spend your money!

How on Earth can crystals grow so large? See their display showing how they were excavated from a Namibian farm and transported to the gallery. After entering you come into a open 'gold-mine' where the kids can sort through thousands of multi-coloured tumbled stones and collect a bagful of treasures. We spent half an hour doing just that - as... More

I was a bit uncertain when I heard we were going here, but I am so glad we did. It was just the right length, the shops were awesome and the scratch patch for stones was so much fun!

In September 2014 my family visited the Kristall Galerie and it was an amazing experience with the most beautiful stones you can imagine. We all bought book shelve end stops and some other jewelry made of these lovely stones. We returned in December 2016 and my husband had thought it good to give me a gift voucher from the Kristall...

We really didn't expect much when we dropped in on the Kristall Galerie this morning, and were pleasantly surprised by the scope and size of the gallery and displays. A world-class display and gallery in our opinion - great attention was placed on a superb layout and information. And a jaw-dropping collection of crystals. A highly recommended experience for all...

Very well planned to make an excellent and informative visit. Really good exhibits demonstrating why the Europeans wanted to exploit the country. Especially the murdering Germans.
