  • The shell Museum is located at Benitses, along to coast just south of Corfu Town. Occupies one big Hall, for which is not very big, but it's really very nice, for the variety and quantity of shells on display. The store interior is an excellent opportunity to buy original souvenirs to take home, especially as a gift for children.

  • According to the recollections of entering into 6 or 8 euros. The museum itself is not too big a footprint, but the more kinds of clams, snails, crabs, or any combination of medium-plenty of disorder was to us. The label was not always clear to us that what's what, but this may be more of a hiányosabb English is the result of knowledge, such as the lack of labels. :) The Museum is part of a souvenir shop, where shells, and other gift items (e.g. coral jewels) could buy. Interesting and spectacular place was, it was worth checking out, especially to drive the Achillion Palace is very close.

  • The Museum is located in the heart of the village of Benitses, near the hotel Potamaki, one has to climb the stairs to the second floor. The exposition is placed in one big room. The private museum, shells collected from all over the world, mainly in the Pacific region. Not many visitors, mainly families with kids.

  • A very little and boring museum and it cost 4 euro pp. They said it was real but not all items seamed real.. very dissapointed!!
  • Small place, but still awesome. Lots of shells and other amazing items. ;-)
  • Pros: Many beautiful seashells, dryed or stuffed animals, insects, minerals and fossils. Cons: Cigarette smoke in the air, many artefacts were not labelled. Generally: 4/5 - beautiful exibition worth seeing
  • Very interesting exhibition not only about the shells around the world, but about strange sea animals as well. The lady was very helpful, told us very interesting and astonishing facts and stories. Unfortunately the museum itself is not informative, you have to ask to get some details.
  • A very interesting place, I advise you to spend time and visit there
