A brilliant winter
Antwerp in winter. There are few more atmospheric places to be during the festive period. And it’s no coincidence that this year the theme of the annual Winter in Antwerp event is diamonds. Our DIVA is looking forward to the many activities planned for between December 9th and January 8th, including within the walls of the Suikerrui - the part of DIVA to which we are only too happy to welcome you until the museum opens fully in May 2018.
Frozen Morning Light
Tipped to be the highlight at DIVA during Winter in Antwerp is a dazzling object called 'Frozen morning light' by Thalen & Thalen. It is set with some 300 diamonds and weighs a whopping 28 kilos!

My Fair Diamond
The My Fair Diamond jewellery collection is guaranteed to meet the stringent standards with regard to ethics, transparency and, of course, fairness one would expect of the diamond trade. DIVA will host the launch of My Fair Diamond, putting the first series of jewels on show in her entrance hall from December 7th to 17th.
Lighting on the wall
What better way to create warmth and a convivial atmosphere on dark winter days than by illuminating a façade! Head for DIVA on the Suikerrui during the Winter in Antwerp event and prepare to be wowed by the brilliant, yet sober light projection on her façade. Meanwhile, behind the windows several items from the collection will move in mysterious ways...
Shop 'till you drop
A Christmas present list as long as your arm? DIVA can help you with that too! The museum gift shop stocks a range of carefully selected products.
During the Winter in Antwerp event, the shop will be open every day from 11 to 19.00 hrs and on Fridays and Saturdays until 21.00 hrs.
Want to be sure of your visit in May?
Ticket sales for the museum start on December 7th. They will be available both on the website and at DIVA. Once the museum has opened, initially ‘time slots’ will be allocated for every visit to the museum’s permanent collection. So to be sure that you are one of the first visitors to set foot in DIVA’s house, don’t delay when it comes to purchasing your tickets!
During Winter in Antwerp, DIVA’s desk and museum shop will be open every day from 11 to 19.00 hrs and on Fridays and Saturdays until 21.00 hrs. We will not be open on December 25th or on January 1st, closing our doors at 14.00 hrs on December 24th and 31st.
