Shell museum adds new guided tour to programming lineup – Sanibel-Captiva Islander

The Bailey-Matthews National Shell Museum recently introduced a new daily exhibit tour to its experiential program lineup.
The Great Hall Spotlights guided tour takes place at 3 p.m. on the second floor in the Great Hall of Shells, a gallery of over 35 exhibits of shells and mollusks and ecosystems they inhabit. Participants will learn more about shells of Southwest Florida and their habitats, shells from around the world, world record-breaking-sized shells and little-recognized micromollusks. The tour content will vary each day.
“Guide-led dialogues enable visitors to more deeply experience the museum as they learn from our experts about the shells on display and animals in our care,” Executive Director Sam Ankerson said.
The tour complements other daily programs, including the Giant Pacific Octopus Keeper Chats at 11 a.m. and the Queen of the Sea Keeper Chats at 2 p.m. All are included in the cost of admission.

The Bailey-Matthews National Shell Museum is at 3075 Sanibel Captiva Road, Sanibel.
