The Shell Museum

This structure was erected in 1902. The building was also used as a furniture factory and garage for motor repairs. The building is still in a very good state of repair and the solid wooden pillars render a special atmosphere to this edifice.
On the lower level the “touch tank” and aquarium enables visitors and school groups to actively learn about sea life and the creatures along South Africa’s shoreline. A “man and mollusc” exhibition portrays the history of the use of shells by man.
