Among the other
services, The Malacological Museum of Cupra Marittima has one of the
most well-stocked seashells shops in the world. There are over 10.000
seashells species from all over the world. In addition to collection or
souvenir shells, an
infinite number of different articles made of shell and mother-of-pearl
is available in the shop.
These objects come from Philippines, China, Thailand, Vietnam and many
other countries. There is also a section dedicated to the cameos of
Torre del Greco and to mother-of-pearl.
Books, stamps, old malacological printings, jewels and other articles
made with shells are also available.
The naturalistic variety of the shop includes also fossils and minerals.
There is also a “malacological boutique” providing
ties, handkerchiefs, scarfs all decorated with shell subjects and
hand made in best quality silk.
The shop has the same opening timetable of
the exhibition. Main credit cards and currencies are accepted.
