The Seashells Museum in Mauritius is a product of The Collection of Eric le Court.
This impressive collection begun when in 1960, after a cyclone, Eric's parents began to collect shells all around the beaches of Mauritius.
With a collection of more than 8,000 shells of Mauritius and other countries, Eric wants to share his passion with others hence the Seashells Museum was created to give a chance to everyone to discover these marvels of nature.
More the 8,000 seashells are displayed in the museum and some 1,500 species are represented.
The room is air conditioned, and a soft music welcomes you. The atmosphere is cool and peaceful.
You can walk around the 68 display cabinets leisurely and perhaps hear Philippe Geluck say to you – “If you pick up a shell and bring it to your ear, you will hear the sea. If you bring it to you chest, it will listen to your heart”.
