Full description
The World of Seashells presents 8,000 pieces from the collection of Mr. Le Court de Billot, who has collected seashells from around the world. 

Be transported by stories and myths from across the continents, all related to one subject: the origin of life, connected to the symbol of the shell. 

Seashells have shapes that unveil the poetry of mathematics and the great art of nature. The 3D animations onsite will reveal the secrets behind these perfect shapes. The mini-laboratory offers fun activities like listening to the sea from a shell, or observing shell dust under a magnifying glass.

The gallery has a boutique corner where souvenirs, jewelry and decorative items are available for purchase. They mostly come from artisans and small and medium businesses in Mauritius. Visitors will also have the opportunity to purchase accessories in order to make their own necklaces or bracelets.
