Magical World of Shells Museum reviews
Very interesting, informative and colorful. The staff was happy to answer a lot of questions (even the stupid ones). Recommend! more »
Excellent collection of molluscs with detailed and exhaustive information about them. A gentleman working there (Mr Simič) takes his time to inform visitors and answer their questions. more »
Attractive little museum with thousands of shells. From different oceans. There is even a giant shell on a display weighting more than 100 kg. Information is available in different languages and in different interactive ways. Great fun for young and old! There are also some attractive souvenirs and books for sale. The personnel is always attentive and very professional.
