  • Great collection
  • This is an excellent attraction for people of all ages. It's an apparently privately run museum with more shells and wonders of the sea that you can easily take in, all beautifully presented in atmospheric surroundings. We spent a happy two hours here on a rainy day, which compared well with the prices/times of other local attractions. The number and beauty of shells on display is awe inspiring, there is also a very nice gift shop that sells the gamut from tourist tat to collectable shells, display cases, etc.
  • Highly recommend visiting this museum. Without it, the overall impression of the city is not new. The place is really interesting, even small children will find something entertaining. Even if you're not interested in marine residents, you will just be interesting to consider the exhibits, of which there are many.

  • Very clean and quiet place. There are lots of shells of all shapes and colors. A treat for young and old. The exhibition showcases are clean, so that the toilet. Very welcoming. I recommend.
