  • You have to see it to believe. Exhibits change periodically but the Shell House stays the same and is most unique experience.  more »
  • This small but wonderful museum is one of a kind. It has collections of Mr. Headly's jewels, Mary Lou Whitney's fabulous doll house, featured art exhibits, a nice gift shop and classes for children.  more »
