The basic theme of the Museum is designed to stimulate interest and wonder in the fascinating subjects of gems, crystals and mineralogy and Fossils. Our showroom galleries extend over 3000 sq.ft so leave plenty of time for your visit.

Also we have an Audio visual presentation in the professors study called the 'Fire in the Stones' which explains how these beautiful minerals and gems are formed. You can explore our crystal cave display.

The museum has a lovely giftshop supplied by our own gem polishing jewelery making workshop.
