we spent at least an hour here looking at all the various types of seashells and fossils. Not only from Thailand but all over the world, very well set up and displayed. Upstairs are items for sale to the public .

This appears to be primarily a show room for sales, we dropped in to have coffee with a clear advertisement for it, but no coffee available. Lovely looking building which may be a bit of a white elephant
