An eye opener place to learnt and appreciate the varieties of Jadeite, and all the beautiful gems stones of Burma. Definitely a must to visit, and the huge selections of little stores to browse and the fun of bargaining.

Grab and taxi and travel to this place about 30 minutes from downtown. It's excellent for buying jewels, especially serious ones. Much better and more reliable that the Scots Market. You can bargain for a better price but expect to pay reasonable prices for high quality stones.

I came here for buying something for my family, not for visiting the museum. You can buy jewelry from this place but you have to bargain for a better price. Jade, amber, topar, many kinds of gem and stone. You can talk to the seller and learn about gem.

Nice place to learn about the gems before buy one, the museum looks old but the gems are most precious so worth visiting with 5USD.

Looks like official museum building, the decoration inside looks not attractive but the window-show stuffs are incredible fantastic, I never saw a ton of beautifully clear giant jades in various shape like which I saw here. If you love to see luxurious things with nice making, you would enjoy watching. Well, photography inside the museum is not allowed. The admission... More
