Creetown Gem Rock Museum


Chain Road, Creetown, Newton Stewart, Dumfries & Galloway, DG8 7HJ

    The coastal village of Creetown hosts one of the finest private collections of gemstones, crystals, mineral and fossils in its award-winning Gem Rock Museum. Creetown also has an excellent playpark, burnside walks and Heritage Centre.

    Offering a truly a memorable day out, a visit to the Creetown Gem Rock Museum is definitely an experience you'll treasure forever.

    Crystals and minerals are some of nature's most outstanding creations and the collection demonstrates this with many beautiful specimens of world-class standard on display in both their natural and crafted forms.

    However, the museum is more than just a static display - it is a fully interactive experience which the whole family will enjoy: see the AV 'Fire in the Stones' audio-visual display, explore the amazing Crystal Cave, relax in the Professor's Study or test your knowledge with a geology quiz.

    Round off your visit with delicious home baking from the Prospectors' Pantry and don't leave without stepping in to the extensive natural gift shop and gem setting workshop.
