Overview

Yamanashi had many crystal mines in the past. Even today, much jewelry is produced here using polishing and processing techniques handed down over the generations. Our museum opened in 1975 to showcase Yamanashi's jewelry industry and to teach a wide audience all about gems.

If you like gemstones, this is quite educational. Lots of well displayed exhibits. Otherwise can skip it.

it's small, but very very nice, there's a small shopping room with reasonable prices after the showing room. there're so many types of gems. and some are so big. my mother loved it so much.

The shop is open to all but the museum charges you an entry fee like all other places of attraction here. The layout is nice and interesting. But the gem museum at Pattaya, Thailand is a wonderful experience.

Conveniently located along the Retro and Omni bus routes, this museum exhibits a wide array of gems and crystals in a small space. Well appointed and displayed from its rough stages to polished jewelry, if you love gems, then a visit here will satiate you.
