Visiting The Tanzanite Experience museum is an exciting journey right into the heart of this very precious gemstone.  Through a guided tour visitors get to learn and understand why Tanzanite is not only so rare and sought after, but also about the complexities of mining, the skills of cutting and polishing, as well as enjoying the stories and myths surrounding the stone.

The Tanzanite Experience has a commitment to education and provides visitors with the most up to date information on a stone that is still a continued source of fascination to geologists and gemologists the world over.

We love to welcome visitors from all over the world in order to share our knowledge and love of Tanzanite.

We suggest that you allow a minimum of 45 minutes to go through the tour, including the cinema. However, if you are also considering a purchase of Tanzanite, we suggest you factor in a little more time to ensure that you do not have to rush.
