  • Attractive little museum with thousands of shells. From different oceans. There is even a giant shell on a display weighting more than 100 kg. Information is available in different languages and in different interactive ways. Great fun for young and old! There are also some attractive souvenirs and books for sale. The personnel is always attentive and very professional.
