Wasn't very clean or organized. Kept live sharks in aquariums big enough to to barely move. Almost call the animal folks on them. There are much nicer places to get your gifts.

The Souvenir City and Shark Museum is free so that is a plus. There are lots of interesting shark and fish fossils as well as a beautiful display of seashells (museum quality). The shop is massive with lots of souvenir items and prices aren't too bad. Worth a stop on a rainy day or if you want to buy some shells to take home.

Cute spot outside for a photo op. The souvenir shop is interesting, the museum part is a display area. My kids loved the place, it is a good something to do on a summer day. We live in the area and have visited a few times.

Had to go for the salt water taffy and we found most our shells on the beach but wanted some whole sand dollars!!

We were told the Shark Museum was a great place to buy shells, which turns out to be true. The museum had several shells to offer in varying sizes, not too bad in price either. It also offered T-Shirts, magnets, jewelry, and gifts for kids. The Shark Museum was FREE (which was nice, since there were no actual sharks). My family had previously visited (years before) and said that they had three, small sharks. So we questioned why there were no sharks at this visit. We were told that the sharks had been taken to a center where they release them into the wild and that the museum was soon to receive new sharks at the museum. The best part was taking our picture outside of the doors. Overall, the museum was neat, a place that the kids loved.
