About the Museum

The non-profit Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum features more than 30 exhibits of mollusks from around the world. Exhibits are devoted to shells in art and history, shell habitat, rare specimens, fossil shells, common Southwest Florida shells, and more. The learning lab features a hands-on play area for children, displays, games, and a tank with indigenous mollusks. Two videos, Mollusks in Action and Trails and Tales of Living Mollusks, are shown (on the hour and half-hour), and a children's video is shown continuously. The museum store also offers a wide selection of shell books.
