  • Quite disappointed with a visit to this Museum a little dusty... Many collections, and an incredible number of shells but it was soon made the tour of the windows and the development of the collections is very limited. A somewhat crowded presentation!

  • A very small museum and I admit my disappointment. In 5 minutes you did the trick. I think he should love the shells to go back.

  • 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.
  • 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.

  • Discovery of a huge collection of shellfish and crustaceans gleaned from around the world. Amazing species by size and their color, as the cocotiers😲 crab. More than a collection, it is also an impressive source on their features and habitats, diets and their adaptation to their environment. What great color palette. For children more than one questionnaire depending on the age with reward, Nice. Corner coloring pages for children and souvenir shops. Good family time. It takes more than an hour of visit on two levels.

  • Private establishment which has many varieties of shell on 2 levels. The children receive a questionnaire that allows them to have a little gift at the end of the visit (a bag with shells) and the fun and educational visits. Shells are beautifully presented in showcases, but the circulation space is cramped in case of strong inflows. The were 300 visitors a day on average with peaks at 1000 in the case of rainy days... like today. Disabled access and air-conditioned premises. Free gift shop. Time to visit between 1 h and 2 h after your interest to read what written on the shells and the number of people present.
