Sea Shell Museum, Diu

63

Located on the eastern side of the Diu Airport, close to Nagoa Beach, Sea Shell Museum was set up by a retired merchant navy captain Fulbari, who devoted most years of his life collecting various types of sea shells in the course of his voyages.

The museum, believed to be the largest in Asia, boasts of a huge repertoire of approximately 2500 to 3000 types of sea shells. It is also claimed to be the first museum in the world where visitors are provided magnifying glasses of varying powers to closely scan the minute features of the shells.

The shells displayed in the museum include spiders, scorpions, cockle, abalone, molluscs, crustacean shells and several other types of varying sizes and shapes. The museum also holds an extensive stock of study material devoted to providing detailed information on the history of shells. Admission to the museum is permitted by a ticket for Rs.10/.
