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... More

I would say that you can skip this place as there is nothing much to see. You will find some unique sea shells but if you have never seen seashells then only go... More

This unique museum is worth seeing. Visited the place on 03.01.2015 with family. The Collection of see shells is amazing. The Caretaker is very helpful. We lost the way due to wrong navigation, but managed to get there with correct address. The navigation system on the site is needs to be changed.

The museum has a large collection of more than 3000 sea shells. It varies in size, variety everything. The place is little far off and not much people know about it but it is worth seeing. The caretaker of the place will actually explain you everything and we enjoyed it.

Quite hard to find but fortunately my tuk tuk driver could ask some locals for the exact location. On arrival the place was shut despite it being after the advertised opening time, however, after waiting 15 minutes or so it did open. There was a very large range of shells over a few rooms, not an interactive museum but an... More
