  • This is the best museum I have ever been to. The gemstones, jewelry, dioramas, and sculptures are breathtaking and gorgeous. The exhibits were very informative as well. The staff was polite and the building was very well-maintained. The gift shop was great and had (almost) everything a rockhound could ask for. The prices were very good and I was almost surprised at the affordability, plus I was ecstatic to get a breathtakingly beautiful jade carving! Visit and you will regret nothing.
  • I loved the beautiful collection of stone and intricate pieces of art work. The beautiful vases, jewelry, art work mosaic and description of the varieties of rocks and precious stones. Go visit and enjoy the beautiful collection. The little shop also has beautiful pieces of jewelry and rocks the are reasonably priced. I have a Jadeite earring that is beautiful.
  • What a wonderful museum experience! Beautiful collection of gems, fossils, crystals and stones. Collections include both natural and man made pieces. The staff was very nice and helpful. We had a terrific visit and purchased some great gifts for family and friends.
  • A great collection of master piece work presented with explanations of the craft. Expect to spend around 3 hours viewing the collection.
  • Extremely knowledgeable staff (even the security officer knew a ton of tidbits about the pieces' various provenances) and some genuinely interesting and unique pieces. I loved seeing the blend of art ranging from ancient Chinese reticulated ivory puzzle spheres to modern cameo artists' work. Charming little hidden gem of a museum.
