Located in Rawai, the Seashell Museum is a privately owned collection of some of the rarest seashells from all over the world. Many are among the most sought-after by collectors and are from Phuket and Thai waters, with more than 2,000 species of shells including the only left-handed Noble Volute ever discovered.
Among the collection are the world’s largest golden pearl at 140 karats and giant clams dating back 380 million years that contain the remains of some of the oldest living organisms on Earth.
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 Thai and English.
