This is the most beautiful museum I have ever visited - absolutely packed with three floors of seashell art. When we visited there was no one else there at all! I have no idea why - but I probably wouldn't have enjoyed it as much if it was so busy. It was a bit more expensive than expected, probably because... More

There is nearly no advertisement for this museum in the city. I saw the sign at the traffic and wanted to give it a try. The building is so small that when i arrived I thought it will be a quick tiny event. But once you are inside you will be amazed by the beauty and the variety of seashells.... More

If you have a passion for the ocean's natural beauty and appreciate seashells this is the only collection you'll ever need to see. Inspired myself to become even more of a collector. Truly a unique museum experience!

This museum provided so much variety and information from around the globe. Kids would get bored but if you enjoy art and seeing the natural beauty of the ocean than this is a good place to come. There are also an abundance of decently priced souvenirs and a cute Cafe! My wife also received free silver pearl earrings upon entry!

Nice to see the different types of seashell. However if you are short of time, it is okay to miss the place...

I took my girlfriend here as she absolutely loves all things aquatic, especially shells, and she loves to go diving. A highlight of this museum is that the owner/operator collected all the exhibits herself, from oceans all around the world, and the museum represents literally a lifetime of work and passion for the sea. Taking that into consideration, if you... More

I might not have the taste to appreciate the fine art, this is not a place for a young family. I agree that I am impressed by the collection of seashell, you can easily finish the tour in 30 mins. 6000won is a bit too much to pay.
