  • Flag located in the West side of Tsushima. Bike quite a distance from the ferry terminal. There are a number of huge, colorful objects. Although not related to shellfish. Tourists are few. Snail sculpture was just beautiful.

  • 本身對呢個貝殼館冇乜興趣,但一場嚟到,入去望下啦。呢度館藏量非常非常之多,比我想像中還要多,而且有唔同種類,來自唔同地方嘅貝殼,仲有一個非常之大,但唔知真定假嘅貝殼。 如果呢個貝殼係真的話,既然係咁珍貴的館藏,點解淨係欄住佢?就算放指未牌係度都預左比人摸。  more »
  • Not really worth the hype. Only a Shell House for photo taking. However, it is quite a good pit stop to rest and look at the surrounding sea view.  more »

  • The museum is filled with all kind of shells discovered in Taiwan. It's quite informative yet casual place to spend about an hour with your friends or family. There are some interacting media available as well if you want to know more about the shells. Best of all, it's free to visit.

  • 拍照的地方,最好是落日黃昏時去,不過這是婚紗公司為了拍婚紗而建的地方,所以除了拍照以外並沒有別的用途。
  • 服務人員不懂在搞什麼?有遊客帶小孩來在館內又跑又跳加尖叫的…恐龍家長不制止就算了…工作人員還自顧自的滑手機…不是耳朵壞了就是薪水太好賺了!坐櫃檯就領薪水這樣?
