The Museum

Welcome to The Gem Museum 

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 and minerals from around the world, including the much revered Painite and Alexandrite.

The Institution 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.
