My daughter loves shells. So we popped into this museum. This would be fun only if you are a very big shell fanatic or connoisseur. Otherwise, it's very bland and quite boring. Lots of trays of shells. A lot of them similar to each other....More

If you are a fan of seashells, or nature in general, this museum will be worth the 150 baht entry fee. No doubt it is a small museum, but the variety of shells displayed is substantial. Shell exhibits are collected from all over the world....More

Despite the lack of any major tourist attractions,
this lively neighborhood is a favorite of many.
Whether it's the (somewhat naughty) nightlife of Soi
Patpong, the various handicraft night markets or the
plethora of dining options that tickle your fancy, a
night out in Silom is a must on every itinerary. It's
worth a stop during daytime, too: join office workers
on a quest to tasty street food during lunch and shop

The opening hours of the Bangkok seashell museum are 10am to 6pm. I visited during the week - so do not know if the museum is open during the weekend.
