“Amazing collection !!”
Reviewed December 6, 2013

The owner has collected shells from the across the globe and the collection is amazing. Your kids will totally enjoy this visit. Try talking to the owner (he is always there) as much as you can as he has a lot of information to share.

Note - Its very close to the DIu airport. (The first place to visit once you come out of the airport)

“Shell Museum”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

I would recommend a visit to this place - we bought a few things more because we wanted to support the owner who has himself collected the shells from all over the world.

“48 years of marine life collection”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

Run by a retd. naval officer Captain Devji Bhai, this place is a must visit. Proud of his collection and hunting for admiration, which the old man truly deserves, he likes little chit-chat about them. His knowledge & life long work (collection of 5000 marine life & shells) needs standing ovation from one and all.
Plus its also a good place to buy some souvenirs at good price.

“nice collection”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

The man who runs it is a retired Navy Man and very passionate about his collection. However, he talks too much and is scant able to keep his visitors quiet- so any one who wants to see the exhibits patiently, is never able to.
