the shells were dusty as were the wooden artefacts - having said that we still bought some. When we arrived there were no lights on and we really needed more fans. An offer of cold water wouldn't have gone astray either.

A beautifully unique collection of seashells from all over the world, including information so you can learn about them. There's also a large gift shop above the museum. It's worth a couple hours of your time to go to this museum while you're staying in Phuket.

Don't waste your time going there, you pay for the ticket to see nothing. Quite boring! That's why nobody was there when I visited, no wonder!

200baht entrance ticket for each person is too much , but we can see some good collection of sea shells over here. On the main road and very easily accessible from all parts of Phuket.but this is not a must visit place in Phuket. Thanks a lot for everything, Loving you so much, Peacefully yours. S M Bega Raaj.

We didn't know there are so many beautiful and interesting seashells. You can definitely spend 1 hour or more feeling amazed and fulfilled.

Nice museum to visit on rainy day. Easy accessible. Go here only if there are not too many tourist busses in front of the building. Nice and edjucative place to spend a day with children.

First the bad news, they have a 2 tier pricing system, tourists pay 500% more than Thai's, but if you are a foreigner as they say with a Thai driving license then you get the same price as a Thai. I so wish the British Embassy would charge Thai's 500% more for a visa then they do for other countries... More
