Perhaps the world's most valuable collection of seashells has been put on display at Phuket Seashell near Rawai Beach on Phuket Island's southwestern shores.
The emphasis of the collection is on shells from Phuket and Thai waters which are among the most sough-after, however shells from every part of the world are featured. Displays have been created in a logical order, and visitors can see at once differing characteristics among related species.
The Phuket Sea Shell Museum is open daily from 8:00a.m. till 7:00 p.m.
