Five stars for museum. It's good who have interest in such things. Any person who interest in nature will find it interesting but I have to give one star here due the person who shows the museum Mr Ram is very impatient and have very unprofessional behavior. He should show the museum with narrations and details but he only tells details only when insisted and then also he shows impatience when ask questions. Owner should change the resource person.

Its a museum which displays unique seashells. So if you want to explore something other than the swords and royal attire in a museum, its the place to be. Unfortunately not many including the locals endorse this place to tourist ,but if you have time and chance then surely you must try to explore this place. Wont take more than a hour but worth it!

This is a hidden jewel in Jaipur. There is a website of this museum so you can get details from there. It has not been much publicized perhaps due to limited interest of people in natural history. A person who knows what it takes to collect so many seashells (in term of money, time and effort) it will be amazing that such a collection is located about 1000 miles away from nearest sea shore. I have not seen such collection on any of famous seashore cities in India. The museum houses collection from world over. I am told that this is world's second largest such collection. There are many attractions but I am sure that even a person not having background of biology or molluscs, will be amused to see 300 Kg Giant clam Tridacna which was collected near Andman and Nicobar Islands. Invertebrates do not have bones so they are usually much smaller than vertebrates, yet some of them have acheived considerable size. Tridacna is one of such rare animals. You will be appreciate the museum if you have sense to appreciate natural beauty, diverse designs, colours, combinations that nature creates, human endeavor, passion, hard-work, focused effort, etc.

The lady, who has painstakingly done this is now old but meets special guests. The caretaker Mr. Jairam is very enthusiastic and willing to share his knowledge with visitors.

The museum is ticketed, except for Museum Day in Sept. For adults it is Rs 30 and Rs 50 for camera. I am sure that the owner can earn far more if she rents it out than what she is getting from tickets. Thursday is holiday.

The museum has its foundation on different note. This is unique concept. collection of sea shells but it is just a collection not much variety.
