  • Yes, a rich, surprising and rewarding visit. I always start from the point of view to appreciate every moment of visit to come out richer. But this place lacks attractiveness and perhaps "purrs" a bit on him even! Maybe the Museum could try venturing a little more to the pedagogical interaction, and we want to learn a little more. The price can be a barrier because really today engage in cultural visits in family "too expensive"! Thank you for your friendly but discreet welcome.

  • Beautiful shells of all sizes fine collection of the whole everyone. A must see. The price per person 8 euros a bit expensive, and single rate...

  • This museum of the shell is huge with its many windows, really fabulous, not to be missed. As well, for child-teenagers there is a quiz to discover fun, it's playful, very well done and staff very friendly who can take the time to respond to novices as we are.

  • 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.
