“Has to be seen !”
Reviewed June 7, 2014 via mobile

This place has to be seen , It may not be everyone's cup of tea, but until you see what someone can do with shells you can't believe some of it is possible ? You can be in and out in Ten mins or you might just get caught up with the whole shell thing and be an hour , either way take a look , you will be fascinated !

“Pretty and free!”
Reviewed April 22, 2014

A lovely way to spend half an hour browsing with old and young alike. My parents loved the skill and beauty of these displays created over a long period and now displayed beautifully in a lovely converted fishermans shed right by the beach.

“A complete surprise - highly recommended - AND FREE !”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

We went with very low expectations and came out very impressed indeed.

You need to check that it is going to be open as it is completely run by volunteers but it was excellent and really very interesting.

It is only one large room but you will be amazed at the structures that have been built out of shells.

Shells and odd bits are for sale and only donations need to be offered.

Highly recommended as a 30 minute rest from eating ice cream etc etc .

“A tardis of shell sculptures”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

This is really surprisingly good. There are lots of interesting sculptures. The attention to detail and sheer scale of some of the exhibits are really impressive. This is basically a small room with many sculptures inside. There isn't so much information about the artist. Whilst it is free there is the opportunity to purchase shell items suiting a variety of budgets and there is the chance to make a donation. Children get a free postcard. My 6 year old daughter loved it and begged to go back in the next time we were in Sherringham.
