Visited on a rainy day with the grandchildren. Lots and lots of huge different shells from Thailand and from all over the world . Two floors to discover with a gift shop on the main floor. Helpful courteous and friendly staff

It was a long bus ride from Puket downtown to get to the museum, but I wouldn't make a special trip to see it unless you are planning to going by it anyway. It certainly is fascinating to see all the types of seashells displayed....More

The entery ticket is 200 baht. There are so many different seashells and they are displayed in a beautiful order. It's really realxing to just wandering around this museum, and there are also many souvenirs to choose for a reasonable price

This is one of the largest collections of seashells in the world. The displays of shells is well done. You can also see the World’s Largest Golden Pearl (160 karats) and a massive 550 pound shell. The golden pearl however lacks luster. This beautiful collection...More
