  Bangkok Seashell Museum

Thailand

The collection of shells at the Bangkok Seashell Museum includes, besides seashells, also shells of land snails and freshwater molluscs, as well as the globular endoskeletons of sea urchins and a few other oddities.

 

The museum represents the childhood passion of Ms. Oraphin Sirirat and Mr. Somwang Patthamakhanthin, who collected all the shells.
