Concierge.com's insider take:

As opposed to the many cheesy shell shacks, this is a serious museum devoted to saltwater, freshwater, and land shells (snails) from all over the world. Exhibits also include fossil shells found in Florida, displays on the medicinal benefits of mollusks, and sailors' valentines—shell crafts made by natives of Barbados for sailors to take home to their lovers. Make this your last stop before shelling on Sanibel or Captiva islands—and remember it's illegal to take live shells from beaches.
