Philadelphia Shell Show
Visitors to the Academy of Natural Sciences can view sea shells at the largest show of its kind. In addition, guests can ask members of the Philadelphia Shell Club to answer questions and identify shells they have collected during their travels.
Thousands of shells can be seen and purchased at this event. Metered parking is available near the museum. Some metered parking is free on Sundays but read signs carefully to make sure. Nearby parking lots offer discounted rates but be mindful as some have special requirements to obtain the discount.
