  • We visited Magical world of shells museum with our school on a field trip. The place was really small, but the collection was the biggest one I have ever seen. I really liked the whole experience...

  • Small museum with a large and unique collection of shellfish and knowledgeable helpful staff! It was interesting to stop by for an hour or so! Eur 10 entrance for a family of four and paid in cash. Unluckily the shelf description is all in local language and you get a file with numbers for a description in English which was not always easy to following but still highly recommended!
  • A big thank you to lady who work there- for great adventure, important new facts and unforgetablle memories (she explaned fossil history, teach us new things, show us shells ...) The place is filled with numerous underwatter shell, snail, crab species. Great experience.
