Good air conditioned museum in Rawai. Value of money, real high level museum! There are plenty of space and usually do not see many people inside.

Interesting place to visit, but would be a TERRIFIC place to tour if you had a real interest in sea shell life. Beautifully displayed, but some of the written cards were quite faded and difficult to read.

When we arrived at the museum, the parking lot was empty. Completely empty. Our group of 4 were alone for an hour (with exception of 2 other visitors) the entire time. As a scuba diver, I was VERY impressed with the quantity and variety of sea shells. In fact, it is the best seashell collection that I have ever seen!... More

After reading certain reviews I was a bit reluctant to go. Still, having a spare afternoon to fill-in, I have decided to pay a visit and in the end I have not regretted. The museum is located on the lower ground floor. It is quite comprehensive and well organised. I am passionate about sea shells and I had the nice... More

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.
