  • Whilst the price of 200 Baht per person is a tad high, the museum is well worth a visit. Beautifully laid out with much information on each family type of shells. Truly worth a visit. The shop above h...  more »
  • With our children not fans of museums at all it was not won, but the presentation very varied, very colorful with often shells of the same kind but in different sizes, won the membership! The photos representing the shell in its natural environment are a real plus. A lot of effort made by this museum. The price is understandable because of the diversity of the collection with some rare and ancient specimens. If you pass Phuket city (and the city is well worth it especially its unique atmosphere, its smiles and its WE market) go through the museum!

  • We reached on our own, without a tour. There was almost no one there except us. Shells are very beautiful, many are simply unique, but all the texts without russian translation, without knowledge of English will not understand anything. Near the entrance is a fountain with free drinking water.

  • Pretty impressed with this little museum. The variety is astounding. I learned a lot of new things. I wish that the shells were labeled with the common names in addition to he scientific.
  • Oldest museum in Phuket, Rawai, A lot of things to see free...and more to see by buying ticket..
  • This museum has huge collection of shell. The building is a little bit old (need to renovate) but it is still good condition. The time is stop when we were there I would say.
  • Lots of fancy collection of seashell for you to spend one hour or two.
  • A magnificent collection of any known shells there are-very detailed and with colour pictures of the molluscs as well. If you have an interest in shells-definitely a must see ! And the time, spend learning something new, in airconditioning, on a hot day, is a plus :-) Maybe a museum shell book for purchase in the shop would be a bonus ( as some countries won’t allow shells to be imported)
