Cute little local shop, museum had a great selection of shells, alligators, fish from all over (my oldest son loved it), and you can buy a variety of shells and items made of shells. The shark jaw was the best! Thanks!

About us

The Discovery Seashell Museum has been an Ocean City landmark for over 40 years. We have 1000's of species of shells from all over the world which are all identified and tagged. But we just don't sell and display shell! We have a full rock and mineral case as well as a fossil case with specimens dating back millions of years! In addition, we have shell knick-knacks, jewelry, christmas ornaments, toys, hermit crabs and more. A unique and enjoyable learning experience for children and adults!
