Fodor's Review

A prehistoric Coelacanth fish, thought to be extinct since the end of the Cretaceous period until one was found in 1938, is among an impressive display here. The fish is not so well preserved, but other specimens, as well as seashells and maritime art, including cameos, are in good shape. A rare conus milneedwarsdii shell—a type of sea snail also known as the Glory of India—once moved a collector to offer his Land Rover in exchange for the piece.
