About The Gem Museum
The Gem Museum is Singapore’s first and most comprehensive private museum located in the heart of the Bras Basah. Bugis district, housed in a preserved heritage building that was once the precinct of a renowned all-boy’s institution – Catholic High School – along Queen Street. The museum features a wide range of gems (ruby, sapphire, spinel, emerald, tourmaline, etc.) and minerals from around the world, including a range of coloured diamonds and a rock garden. The Gem Museum, tells the story of how a gem goes from the mine to market in 4 different stages, from formation, to Mining and extraction, to gem and diamond cutting, lastly to the trade and industry.
The museum first opened its doors on 1 June 2015, as an initiative by Far East Gem Institute to bring knowledge and experience of gemmology to the public. Most of the gems and minerals on display belong to the private collection of Far East Gem Institute’s founder, Mr. Tay Thye Sun.
