On December 12, 2019, the Maine Mineral & Gem Museum will open their doors to the public. The completed exhibits will feature the most comprehensive collection of gems and minerals unearthed in Maine and the world’s rarest displays of space rocks featuring the Stifler Collection of Meteorites-including the largest piece of the Moon known to exist on Earth.

Be among the first to experience the metamorphism of Maine’s Premier Science Museum.


The Maine Mineral and Gem Museum celebrates the miners who made the discoveries; scientists and their research; lapidaries who transform rough stones into stunning gems, and educators who make science fun for us all. This is their story. Creating the MMGM has been both inspiring and humbling. We are deeply honored to share it with the people of Maine and citizens of the world.”
