This place should be closed ! Conditions for the Animals are horrid! Filthy place! Not any better for the humans. And the interesting thing is I just drove through the parking lot to go another function. Want to make a trip there CALL THE ASPCA FIRST

Whether you enjoy animals, feeding the fish or turtles, shopping at the exotic Christmas store, or nautical store, you will enjoy this. Also, there is a restaurant on site pretty good food. On several days of the week, there is a flea market and sometimes a specialty event. Nice place to experience for all ages.

Great place to spend a day with your family. Visit the zoo, play min golf, ride the bumper boats, new zip line. Just to name a few. Food is very good. We had our company party at the Shell Factory and very thing they did for our group was out standing. Go a for a short time or all day.... More

The beaches in the area have a good supply of shells however if you want variety and excellent specimens this is the place to go. Prices are reasonable. There is also a lot to see and do here.

Between the zoo, restaurants, shell collections, zip ride, it is something for the whole family. The amin building is filled with seashells and different rooms with different collection. It even has a Christmas display all year round.

If you need a gift from Florida this is the perfect place. Easy entertainment for the kids at heart. There is also mini golf and a flea market once a week here

We decided to take a trip to the Shell Factory since this is a spot our family has not yet visited while vacationing on Marco. When we arrived, my first thought was, "wow, did we get stuck in the 70's" and still thought the same as we walked around inside the gift shop, which by the way is extremely large... More

Absolutely loved the bird interaction area. They come right up to you, talk back, and have no problem with you petting/holding them. The attached bar/restaurant had fantastic service and a wonderful bartender who even offered to keep our leftover food refrigerated while we enjoyed the mini-golf and animals. Very enjoyable experience and would return.
