PHUKET SEASHELL MUSEUM

 

 

The Seashell Museum near Evason Resort in Rawai contains and displays valuable seashells from all over the world. Many are among the most sought-after by collectors and are from Phuket and Thai waters. It's a perfect attraction to keep kids and adults entertained on a rainy day.

The museum is very well put together and is located in the basement of the large building. It has four main exhibitions, all with information in both English and Thai. The entry fee is reasonable.

 

Phuket Seashell Museum Highlights

Among its impressive collection are noble volute (a heavy seashell with varied patterns), tiger cowries and stout-spine murex. In addition there are also some rarities and odd shells including the world's largest golden pearl (140 karats), large sections of sedimentary rock containing shell fossils that represent the earth's earliest life-forms, and a shell weighing in at 250 kilograms!

On the ground floor, there are many interesting gifts and souvenirs worth checking out. If you are looking for shell items, look no further as the museum’s gift shop is quite big and covers the entire area. Products include sea shell carving for indoor decoration, sea shell jewelry, key chains, shell mobiles and many more shell crafts and arts. Phuket Seashell Museum also houses a variety of pearl items such as necklaces, rings and earrings as well as mother-of-pearl dining sets including spoons, forks and knives. Prices vary.
