Burma is famous for its jade, rubies, sapphires and
natural pearls. The Gem Museum in Yangon is an excellent place to both view and
buy these precious stones.
The main museum of Burmese art, history and culture
houses an impressive range of ancient artefacts, works of art, ornaments,
inscriptions and historic memorabilia.
Officially opened in June 1952, a visit to this museum
will present travellers with a revealing glimpse into the past and traditions
