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
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
