A place where you can learn all about gemstones from all around the world, meet people with common interests and ultimately gain more knowledge and confidence in your next purchase. Staff and boss are extremely friendly and knowledgeable! If a certain piece chases your eye, you may even be able to buy it from them. Enjoyed my visit to The Gem Museum, hope you will enjoy your own unique experience too ????!

Fabulous for busy toddlers Tons of fun exhibitions that are interactive and fun. Some areas roped off but lots to do. Great for ages 2-6/7yrs old. Very spacious and great place for kids to run around and have some great learning experiences. Facility was very clean and organised with lots of staff available. The built environment and shopping area was the biggest hit and very interactive. Bring socks for small soft play area. I did both KidsSTOP and science museum in one day. Bit overwhelming for a toddler and would just do KidsSTOP on its own. There is a morning and afternoon session to choose from. Leave strollers just outside entrance gate. Staff very vigilant with hygiene and checking for HFM symptoms. Entry fee for non Singaporean or PR is quite high. I paid for an adult ticket and 2yr old and thought a tad pricey. However, would still visit again in future but wish residents included in pricing!
