the crowd here is obviously sparse because of the nature of the museum, only seashells but if dont mind seashells, or if you have any least kind of fascination with these, this is the most fascinating place in jaipur.

As the name suggests, seashells are all there is. nothing more at all. Now if you can enjoy those, you must visit this museum. The variety and display is breathtaking. That too so far from sea! I don't know how they made this collection, but well made.

Incredible (a) that an exclusive seashells museum should exist so far away from sea, and (b) there should be over 3,000 different species of them. It is a riot of colours with all possible shapes and sizes. The smallest one has to be seen through a magnifying glass while the largest one-Giant Clam- is 1.5 metres long and weighs 150 kgs. Simply baffling. The shells have been very aesthetically displayed and even the lamps comprise of shells hanging around them. The shells have over 100 rare and over 1,000 uncommon species. On top of it all, for the science buff they are all classified classwise, superfamilywise, familywise and specieswise. All of them are also labelled with ,apart form taxonomical details, their common names and ocean/sea in which they are found.
It is treat for the eye and heart and storehouse of scientific information for the discerning scholars. It is completely different from all other museums at Jaipur which only show the Jaipur art and culture. A MUST SEE FOR VISTORS TO JAIPUR.

Its an amazing collection of sea shells..starting from 5g to 150kg!!! So many types of sea-shells. Its very difficult to imagine how much hard work would have been put in to collect such a huge collection over a period of time. It is also very important to understand that preserving these sea shells also takes lot of efforts. Must visit this museum.

We were wondering what to do next at Jaipur having visited most of the monuments. While browsing came across this note on a Sea Shell museum in a state that has Desert and no coastal line

Located in a family colony, Malaviya Nagar this litte known place is a treasure house of more than 3000 Sea Shells from all over the world. Founded by Alice Garg the whole collection is awesome and we spent close of 90 minutes admiring the nature.

Please take some time out of your stay in Jaipur and visit them.
