At Sea Shell Museum, admire the exceptional craftsmanship of Radha Mallappa, who has been making beautiful art pieces from seashells and conchs for more than two decades. Scaled models of Taj Mahal and Shiva temple stand out among the displayed items, but the true centerpiece of this quirky collection is 6.7 cm (22 ft) Ganesha idol that was included in the Guinness Book of Records. Other interesting pieces include flower arrangements made out of peanut and pistachio shells, lovebirds made out of paddy grains, and crows made out of hair.

  • It is very close to sand sculpture museum. Small in size, however very impressive. All the artefacts made up of sea shells only.  more »
  • This place is very good but small to pay 50 rs entry. If you like to enjoy small thing, then this is a must go place. Apart of sea shell, the artist has also made flowers from all kinds of materials.....  more »
  • Not so great experience. Just a place where you can find someones hobby exhibited. Rs 50 for the entrance is way too high. Rs 10 would be more than enough. Not a great place to visit. Its just the art that can be appreciated, But not at such a high cost.
  • Must visit in Mysore. just opposite to the sand sculpture museum. The lady is a guiness record holder for shell sculptures. We met her at the museum and she was too humble. We loved her creations and something very unique. Check out the photos. This type of talent needs recognition and support. Pleas visit whenever you are in Mysore.
