This is a hidden jewel in Jaipur. There is a website of this museum so you can get details from there. It has not been much publicized perhaps due to limited interest of people in natural history. A person who knows what it takes to collect so many seashells (in term of money, time and effort) it will be amazing... More

As you go to see something interesting. But this place is quite different as you see sea shells in a deserted area which is a bit strnage. I would say that you can skip this place as there is nothing much to see. You will find some unique sea shells but if you have never seen seashells then only go... More

This unique museum is worth seeing. Visited the place on 03.01.2015 with family. The Collection of see shells is amazing. The Caretaker is very helpful. We lost the way due to wrong navigation, but managed to get there with correct address. The navigation system on the site is needs to be changed.

Quite easy to reach from Albert hall museum, straight road, very close to the airport. But , we managed to get lost, and found our way back only with the help of the manager/caretaker of the museum.

The museum has a large collection of more than 3000 sea shells. It varies in size, variety everything. The place is little far off and not much people know about it but it is worth seeing. The caretaker of the place will actually explain you everything and we enjoyed it.

Quite hard to find but fortunately my tuk tuk driver could ask some locals for the exact location. On arrival the place was shut despite it being after the advertised opening time, however, after waiting 15 minutes or so it did open. There was a very large range of shells over a few rooms, not an interactive museum but an... More

Along with Amber Fort, City Palace Museum, Hawa Mahal, Jantar Mantar and other places in Jaipur one must pay a visit to the above museum. This museum showcases over 3,000 species of seashells belonging to different classes, super families and families in a very striking manner.
