On sunset road there is no museum. Do anybody know the actual address? I was there today, nobody knows about it, nobody knows where it is now.

Even though their website is still up and running and saying their address is 819 Sunset Road, the place is no longer open. There is a dental/beauty clinic in its place.

Having seen the museum on past visits I decided to go there and see if it had closed or not. It either moved or it is closed because the place where it had been is vacant and all signage is removed. That is to bad because it sounded like a nice place to visit. If anyone has any further information... More

I took a cab ride and the taxi driver eventually found it. The reason why it was so hard to find as we went past it 3 times was because it has closed down. I saw other fellow tourists turning up also to the empty museum with no evidence whatsoever it even actually existed as all the signs were down.

I photograph living shells and collect shells and fossils. I have visited many museums and am a member of multiple museums in the States. This museum, while in a strip mall and unimpressive from the outside, is totally amazing on the inside. The top two floors contain a very impressive collection of fossils - some of which I have never... More

We visited on our recent holiday in Seminyak, after being intrigued by the reviews here on TA. I thoroughly enjoyed seeing all the shells and fossils, which were displayed excellently, and well worth the entrance fee of 75K Rp. We were informed that it would be closing soon, which is a pity, due to the lease expiring on the building.... More

The Bali Shell Museum is located near Carrefour in Kuta. The ground floor is a shop which is free to browse; the actual museum is on the 2 floors above the shop level and it is a 75,000 IDR entry fee. We were escorted to the museum level, but the guy just waited around and didn't provide any information, but... More
