A bit boring but we had nothing else to do. Impressive shells on display. We had a few hours so stopped by. Would not go again as it not my thing to do.

This is a very comprehensive collection of seashells from around the world. There is an amazing variety, and everything is clearly labeled in English and Thai. Upper floor is a store area; underground floor is the museum (200 Baht/person admission).

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
