Swarovski Crystal Museum

Swarovski Crystal World is amazing! Our tour guide Flip described it as “crystal on acid” and that’s the most accurate one I can come up with.
After looking through all the exhibition spaces (which are incredible) you enter a showroom/sales area. There you will find the biggest collection of Swarovski products in the world. The part you initially enter is all quite expensive stuff, but if you keep going through you will reach the “costume jewellery” section where you will find very reasonably priced earrings, rings, etc.
Great place to splurge some of your spending money on souvenirs for special people (including yourself!) which is not going to take up much luggage space at all!
thanks for that info! is the only way you can get in to the sales area through the museum? or is it a public area to access?
You can enter the sales area without going into (and paying for) the museum. Honestly I did not enjoy the exhibit at all. It was the only optional I wish I didn’t do. You really don’t miss out if you don’t join in for that one. You can shop in the store or relax at the cafe while others are in the museum. I don’t think it was cheap, so I would recommend skipping it. I’m sure everyone has different opinions though. Enjoy your tour!
hi chrissy haha
thanks heaps for that! that’s what i wanted to know coz i’ve been reading mixed reviews about the actual museum but i really wanted to buy some stuff from the shop. but that solves my problem now! =)
Yeh im in agreeance with Chris,
I would have rathered giving 8 euro to a hobo to jab me in the eye with a dirty needle than see that exhibit again haha, truely a waste of time.
Then again im male…
LOL thanks for that visual Bradley..
yeah i think im gonna skip the museum and go straight to the sales area to shop!
thanks for all the advice guys!
Yes you can definitely get into the sales area without going through the exhibition, there’s a little cafe there too I believe.
My opinion is definitely bias because I’m a Visual Arts Teacher <!--graemlin::D-->
Bradley – I agree completely with your scenario. I’d really like to know what drugs were abused in the creation of that exhibit. haha
I can’t wait. I love my girly stuff and crystals. … Swarovski make some fantastic stuff. Been staring in the sales windows back home for ages. A friend went on contiki and came home with some amazing stuff incl a ring which here was about $150 was only 20 euros and so sparkly.
… Not too sure what to think of the museum. But it sounds like fun and only 6 euro so def going to check it out. … I’ve even got my boyfriend excited .. they do cufflinks too. … All a bit of fun.
Where exactly is this museum?
From what I understand (and it has been newly totally redone so v diff what it used to be) it is a crystral museum where are whole lot of different artists have incorporated cyrstal into their artwork.
Check out the link if you want.
WOW, it looks amazing. Has anyone been yet? Is it a great experience???
Close to everyone in this thread has been :P
To be honest, It is a glorified showroom, the coolest part about the whole place is the Waterfall and the Gardens outside. Other than that it really isn’t very awesome.
The show room is kinda neat though if you are into the kind of things they sell. They had some good deals on this years/last years Christmas Ornament’s which were pretty much the only things I was interested in. As far as Cufflinks, I know they make them, but I didn’t see any and I spent some time looking, to be honest with you I don’t remember seeing any mens Jewelry in the showroom at all.
Shane, i’m all about men’s jewellery. Still, it would be good to see.
I meant: Shame.
