Maine Mineral and Gem Museum

The Maine Mineral and Gem Museum is being built to showcase our geological history, display renowned mineral and rock collections, provide educational opportunities for the novice and expert alike, conduct historical and geological research and to create a Maine travel destination for residents and visitors. The museum will house some of the finest mineral collections from Maine and throughout the globe. It will also include the famous Perham Collection, viewed by generations in an area mineral store that operated in western Maine for 90 years as well as an impressive collection from our Solar System featuring meteorites from Mars, the moon and the Asteroid Belt. In fact, our museum will allow you to reach out to the stars and actually touch a lunar meterorite! Our goal will be to amaze in a one-of-a-kind, world class museum located only a stone’s throw away from the western Maine mines that once sheltered these mineral treasures.

Main Street 103, Bethel, Maine, USA
