Location: Second Floor, Exhibit Type: Permanent The Hope Diamond, is on display in The Harry Winston Gallery. To learn more, visit the Smithsonian Channel's website for the documentary, “Mystery of the Hope Diamond.”
Usually pretty crowded and a little underwhelming. The jewel rotates so just find an empty space and it'll come to you.
Hope diamond exhibit, was popular.. but we liked the dinosaurs!
Is that the real one or a duplicate and the real one is in the vault?
I Hope one day I'll have a diamond so beautiful
It will look better on my neck. :)
It's like trying to view the Mona Lisa. Have to wait your turn. Good thing the display turns, so it will eventually faces you in about three revolutions.
Whoever comes in direct contact with the stone is cursed for life! So, please no touching.. :P
