In Focus Exhibition Opens Tomorrow!


The new exhibition of some 60 high-resolution, large-scale photographs, taken in recent years at the Museum, conveys in compelling detail the richness and unique attributes of the universe of shells and mollusks. It features many species unfamiliar to most collectors and enthusiasts.

Organized by Dr. José H. Leal, Science Director and Curator of the National Shell Museum, the selected photographs are part of the Museum’s Digital Imaging Project. Funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services, the Digital Imaging Project creates a publicly accessible digital database of the Museum’s collection.
