The entery ticket is 200 baht. There are so many different seashells and they are displayed in a beautiful order. It's really realxing to just wandering around this museum, and there are also many souvenirs to choose for a reasonable price

This is one of the largest collections of seashells in the world. The displays of shells is well done. You can also see the World’s Largest Golden Pearl (160 karats) and a massive 550 pound shell. The golden pearl however lacks luster. This beautiful collection...More

The seashell museum was super interesting. The huge collection of different shells was mesmerising. I happen to make jewellery from shells, so loved wandering around the exhibits. The exhibition room was air conditioned making it a lovely place to escape the heat. There is also...More
