Malacological collection consists of ca. 2,500 shells from all the oceans. Shells are of high quality in terms of representative size, flawless condition (intact) and colours. The collection is not set by the strict malacology rules but in a way to describe the richness, beauty and diversity of the sea in the best possible way. Of course, for those who like to read, each species has written its scientific Latin name, translation, along with some other interesting details.

On the shelves are represented some of the rarest species altogether for which is almost equally likely to come across in your bath as you'll find them in the sea. Rare does not mean in a same time endangered because they are usually shells that stay in inhospitable locations, especially in terms of the depth at which they live, and for that reason, their finding is very rare.

Fishes due to the space constraints are not represented in a large numbers. Of the larger exhibits here are to a swimmers always interesting sharks that in almost unchanged form existed tens of millions of years before the first swimmers. Therefore, it is hardly a scientific fact that innocent, or not so innocent, but still delicious swimmers are base of their diet.

Corals , that strange animal colonies whose estate non of a human one is matching, form an important part of the collection, especially in terms of architectural perfection and variety of timeless beauty.

Sea turtles are also well represented along with a crabs, starfish and leggy cephalopods including frequent but nonetheless fascinating Nautilus Pompilius. When something that advanced like nuclear submarine is based on Nautilus 'technology' millions of years old, then you need to take a little break, think, and after a moment to be a little wiser than before
