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.

A great collection of master piece work presented with explanations of the craft. Expect to spend around 3 hours viewing the collection.
