About The Gem Museum

The Gem Museum is Singapore’s first and most comprehensive private gemology museum.

Follow our museum route of how gemstones are being transformed from the mine to market in 4 different stages (from formation, to mining and extraction, to gem and diamond cutting (lapidary), lastly to the trade and industry). It’s an enriching learning journey from the museum to the exquisite showroom.

The museum first opened its doors on 1 June 2015, as an initiative by Far East Gem Institute to bring knowledge and experience of gemology 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. Through the Far East Gems Group founder Mr Tay Thye Sun who is an honorary recipient of the Fellowship of the Gemological Association of Great Britain, we believe in proper gemological education.

The Gem Museum also holds regular talks, workshops and programs for children to promote the knowledge of gemology (a niche part of geology). You may visit  https://www.eventbrite.sg/o/the-gem-museum-9816122209 for more information on the upcoming talks and workshops available.
