About the Activity - Visit to the World of Seashells Museum

If you feel like you’re running out of places to visit in Mauritius, think again! Deals.mu brings you an amazing opportunity to explore an intriguing component of our island; seashells. This is a great way to expand your knowledge about these vibrant creatures during a fun day out with your kids, friends or family.

Embark on this enriching journey at the one and only World of Seashells Museum, located in Place du Moulin, Bel Ombre. During your visit, you will discover all the secrets of the shells: their morphology, their living mechanism, their defence system, the beautiful, perfect patterns and dreamy colours. You will also learn how people have used shells throughout the world over the course of centuries.

What to Expect?

Visit to the World of Seashells Museum- The Experience:

  • Head to the World of Seashells, the only seashells museum in Mauritius, presenting 8,000 pieces from the collection of Mr. Le Court de Billot. This passionate Mauritian conchophile has collected seashells from around the world with concern of ecosystems and species. The collection began before him with his parents, who passed on their passion for shells.
  • Discover a wide variety of Seashells which come in all shapes, colours and sizes - from round to spiky and patterned with a rainbow of colours: red, green, brown, purple, pink, and more. People have always been fascinated by pretty objects, and once picked, these seashells have been used for jewellery, decor, utensils, tools and even as a form of currency!
  • The Entrance Ticket gives you access to the Myths and Legends section where you will be enthralled by the stories and myths based on the origin of life being connected to the symbol of the shell. Next stop is about the Shell Theorem. You will be able to learn about how these seashell shapes unveil the poetry of mathematics and the great art of nature. To further enhance your visit, do not miss out the Interactive and Educative displays. The Mini-Laboratory offers many fun activities that will help you discover the mollusc world - it is not everyday that you will get to listen to the sea from a shell.
  • Some shopping is always a good idea, so head out to the Retail Corner where you will get beautiful souvenirs, jewellery and decorative items, all inspired by seashells. You will even be able to purchase accessories to make your own necklace or bracelet.
