The Maine Mineral and Gem Museum showcases our geological history, displays renowned mineral and rock collections, provides educational opportunities for the novice and expert alike, conducts historical and geological research and is a Maine travel destination for residents and visitors. MMGM will house the finest collection of Maine minerals and gems. It will include the famous Perham Collection, viewed by generations in a local mineral store that operated for ninety years. MMGM will display one of the world’s foremost collections of extraterrestrial rocks—meteorites from Mars, the Moon and the Asteroid Belt that teach us about the origins of our Solar System.

Bethel sits in an area known for its gems and minerals and has a long history built around it. In particular mica mines and tourmaline deposits. A local philanthropist decided to to herald this heritage by building a world class museum and research center in the heart of town. You can read about it in the NY Times! It holds one of the worlds most coveted collections of meteorites. Yup...in little old Bethel.
