This was the first time we were in a seashell museum and we liked it. The exhibit is quite fascinating. Diplays hold numeorus unusual shells, snails and even lobsters in all the colors of the rainbow.

Expected this to be small-scale and tacky - was very pleasantly surprised by just how comprehensive and interesting it is. Worth the visit!

You do not have to be interested in sea shells to be amazed at what is beautifully presented at this museum. My wife and I were there for well over an hour and could so easily have been there longer. Great souvenir shop with some amazing bargains for real quality merchandise. Spotlessly clean and inexpensive restaurant and ample parking.
