Shells and Algae gallery

mmi-1.jpgOn the upper atrium of the museum, a combination of volumetric aesthetics bathed by the invading light provides the right scenario for the rich collection of sea shells, donated by Pierre Delpeut in 1965. 

Interested visitors can observe the all collection in the stocks of the museum. This room, dedicated to collecting, completes itself with a collection of seaweeds, organized by Américo Teles, the museum founder.
