  • This museum is really not helpful, see a seashell picked up on the beach, all the world little do, for really not interesting young people.

  • Very welcoming. If you have children, they will be a very interesting questionnaire because really in tune with the visit and the discovery of the species. At the end of the course, you give them a little surprise... There will not be that go on the beach looking for other "treasures"... Very pleasant discovery this museum located in between city.

  • A lot of shells, as you would expect. A bit to much for younger children but they do have some games and colouring to keep them amused.
  • 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.
  • Great collection
  • ♿ Friendly, the owner is a passionate and makes you discover its wonders with happiness. Detailed and instructive explanations. Very nice Museum, place surprising by both the quantity and the variety of the exposed shells. Very beautiful and gigantic pieces. Space shark is surprising. Store well-stocked with very nice specimens for sale, a little pricey for some. Playful tour for children. Note: Museum and the wheelchair accessible WC rolling ♿
