The Phuket Seashell Museum displays a large variety of sea shells and fossils, with an emphasis on shells found in Thai waters, which are highly prized by collectors. Although more like a large shell store, the displays are very interesting as well as beautiful.
Among the museums exhibits are many rare or unique specimens, including one of the rarest golden pearls and the only left-handed Noble Volute. As its also a shop, you can buy some of these lovely shells which can make nice gifts.
Getting there: The Phuket Sea Shell Museum is located on Wiset Road opposite the entrance to Evason Phuket Resort & Spa, between Chalong tand Rawai. You can’t miss the large wentletrap shell out front.
Admission fee: 200 Baht per adult. 100 Baht per child. Opening times: 08:00 – 19:00, except on public holidays.
