Awesome gem museum and shop
Mar 2020
This museum is part museum and part gem shop. The museum isn't that big, but covers the whole life cycle of gem formation through mining, cutting and polishing, and finally sale. The curator of the museum also does a guided tour and it's great at answering questions about gems, being a qualified gemologist, demonstrates commendable knowledge. There’s also some awesome gems on display or to buy in their gem shop upstairs. I also really enjoyed using a microscope to look up close at some of the gems which the curator was kind enough to demonstrate to me.

Learning more!
Jan 2020 • Solo
A place where you can learn all about gemstones from all around the world, meet people with common interests and ultimately gain more knowledge and confidence in your next purchase. Staff and boss are extremely friendly and knowledgeable! If a certain piece chases your eye, you may even be able to buy it from them. Enjoyed my visit to The Gem Museum, hope you will enjoy your own unique experience too 😉!

Interesting small museum and excellent service
Aug 2019 • Solo
Was with my aunt who is on holiday and she was looking for a gem shop and found this museum. We were greeted by owner Kunming who is obliging, very accommodating and friendly and showed us a few gems and provided some interesting information. It’s a small but interesting museum and owner is knowledgeable and helpful. The friendliness and excellent service makes the whole experience commendable.

Friendly staff and it's free
Jun 2019 • Solo
Well for a free attraction you can't really complain. The staff were friendly, well informed and helpful.

Although small, the Gem Museum has some lovely pieces to see. A short stop, but it was a nice experience chatting to the staff.

If you are looking for some gem pieces and want personalized jewellery made, they have a small shop on the upper floor.

It's a shame I missed out on their short day course to learn more, but if I'm in Singapore again I will definitely book myself on it.

Awesome place to visit and learn about gemstones
Jan 2019 • Solo
Had a fruitful time learning about how gems are being processed from the mines to the market! They also have varieties of gemstones and jewelries for sale, eg: Sapphire, Rubies, Topaz, Alexandrite, necklaces, rings and many more. The owner, Kunming is very knowledgeable about gemology and passionate when he teaches you about gems.The staff was friendly and helpful to guide you through the products. Will visit again!

An excellent place to learn from passionate owners!
Dec 2018 • Family
Sent my boy for their 3 hour Junior Rockstar program and my boy enjoyed it so much ... he literally said out loud “why mummy came so early to pick me up” 😅😅😅😅😅

While the space is not huge, it contain a substantial amount of information relating to various gems and if you need any more in depth information, Mr Tay (KunMing) is there to help!

KunMing (co-founder of the museum) is really passionate about his work and that makes the visit really fun and interesting ... he even help me to check out some dolomite stones for a science experiment!

We will definitely be back for another (or more) visits!
