“Outstanding collection of SeaShells”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2012

We were wondering what to do next at Jaipur having visited most of the monuments. While browsing came across this note on a Sea Shell museum in a state that has Desert and no coastal line

Located in a family colony, Malaviya Nagar this litte known place is a treasure house of more than 3000 Sea Shells from all over the world. Founded by Alice Garg the whole collection is awesome and we spent close of 90 minutes admiring the nature.

Please take some time out of your stay in Jaipur and visit them.

“Lovely little museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2012

A lovely seashell museum in the middle of the desert. The collection is not large, but the seashells are from all over and are clearly carefully chosen and presented.

“Worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2010

An amazing collection of about 3000 different types of seashells scientifically classified and displayed. Shell craft items at its best. Unimaginable in the heart of desert. Very soon Jaipur will not only be known for its forts and palaces but also for it "seashells".

“Unbelievable! Gorgeous! Choicest collection of seashells from all over”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2010

A seashell museum so far removed from the nearest seashore, it has to be seen to be believed. A veritable collection of all types of shells- common, uncommon and rare (near-extinct). The display scheme is also wonderful and very aesthetic. To the scientifically minded what would appeal most is that all the shells have been arranged superfamily and family-wise and the details along with the name of the species and region of the world these occur in are displayed. For the art minded the natural colours and patterns of the shells would be a great attraction. There are even beautiful pieces of shellcraft on display.
