  • Girl all the main brief for 15 minutes told in English, waited until I translated the children. Quite beautiful collection from all over the world. And the biggest and most expensive shells, and bones, and Ridge, and the teeth of sharks, and most importantly, you can then buy them seashells, bone or products. Children choose, but we digress a little from the monotony of the rest. 30 minutes spend

  • Shell Museum of Corfu has the largest collection of seashells Europe including those in the Guinness Book of world records thanks to and were extant, and found them. The Museum features seashells, corals and fossils from all over the world and his collection reflects 20 years of collecting seashells. The Institute also includes other sea creatures such as sharks, piranhas, and fish, and he won the international award for his maritime research. If we remain troublesome time and we should come to the Museum with the kids will enjoy.

  • Neither small nor big exposure. Interesting exhibits. Reasonably useful detailed interpretation. Nice time spent over the greatest heat.

  • 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.
  • Nice exhibition. There are several exotic animal too, not just shells.
  • Nice for the kids! Shells from over the world. Located near the beach and a great visit combining with the mpenitsa beach.
  • Nice location with nice beach
  • Visited the museum for a second time and it has grown three times the size I saw 8 years ago when I first visited it. The biggest private shell collection in the world! Holding several world records. The owner is one of the kindest people I've met, ready to share great stories and memories, and, believe me, he has a lot. Be sure not to miss this place if you ever get the chance to go to Corfu, worth every minute you spend there. PS. Location is slightly changed (200m down the street) - look for the museum signs or ask the people around.
