You will be amazed. It is a perfect small museum of sea shells and other items. The family, collectors, curators and tour guide now run the museum. A must see for Greece.

It wasn't easy to find the Shell Museum, we came across is accidently. Parking is not easy. Not at all wheelchair accessible as there are about 20 steep steps to go up. A nice collection of shells, marine animals etc.
