Phuket Sea Shell Museum

Perhaps the world's most valuable collection of seashells is on display at the Phuket Sea Shell Museum near Rawai Beach on Phuket's southwestern shores.

The emphasis is on shells from Phuket and the Thai waters. Shells from these areas are among those most desired by collectors. However, shells from every part of the world are featured. Wherever they originate, each shell in the museum is the best of its type and often the only of its type. Displays have been created in a logical order so visitors can see at once the differing characteristics among related species.

There are numerous rarities and freaks including the world's largest golden pearl (140 karats). See large sections of sedimentary rock containing shell fossils that represent the earth's earliest life forms. Marvel at the sight of a shell that weights 250 kilograms.

The Shell Museum is open daily from 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
