Welcome to the Maine Mineral
and Gem Museum in Bethel, Maine.

We are currently building a one of a kind, world class museum that will open with the largest collection and display of Maine minerals, gems and historical mining material in the world.

The Museum will be a year-round, visitor centered resource committed to the heritage, economy and tourism of Western Maine. Our guests will learn about the history of mining and see extraordinary samples of minerals and gems. They will also have the opportunity to tour actual mines in the area and view specimens that tell of Maine’s unique place in the geological world.

We look forward to having you visit our Museum. Also, visit our Preview Gallery and Museum Store
