Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum
Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum Review
More than 25 vignettes and exhibits explore shells in the environment, art, and history, including a life-size display of native Calusa and how they used shells for tools and vessels and new exhibits on cowrie shells and the biggest shells in the world. Visit the shell-identifier wheel, which categorizes specimens from local waters in sizes ranging from tiny to huge. Handle shell specimens and play games in the colorful kids' lab. Watch a movie all about shells: how they form and where to find them. A six-foot globe at the center of the museum rotunda highlights shells from around the world. The gift shop is filled with unique items that reflect an upscale nautical theme.
