A gallery/museum with gemstones, including the crown made for the King of Finland (never used as Finland became a republic) and a replica of the British Imperial State Crown.

There are a lot of rocks of gems on display and upstairs there is a necklace of diamonds. Sorry I didn't get the name as I got there late. Price is 10 euro to enter. Very small gallery right next to the ice palace.
