I've been wanting to go to this museum a long time, but never actually made up until now. This small museum is a great experience for both adults and children. At the entrance children are provided with a questionaire fitting their age.
The story of mrs. Warners who was the woman who found most of the shells is amazing. She was a very special and excentric lady that did what she was meant to do; make people aware of the beautiful objects the sea has to offer. This museum has its roots in 1965 and it is very well maintained.
There is a little shop with many different type of shells and other gift items. Also a good area to drink a coffee and have a piece of applepie.
Entranceticket for an adult is €4,50, children 12 €3
The building hosts a few museums, amongst which the Museum of Fake Art (Valse Kunst). In 3 rooms uupstairs you will find fake versions of famous art work (paintings, drawings and design). I advise you to book a guide because I think it is more fun to really know what you are looking at.
