Annual Fund / Greatest Need

The National Shell Museum is a nationally accredited Natural History Museum that increases knowledge of and appreciation for mollusks and their shells using our collections, programs and expertise to inspire learning, support scientific research, and tell the story of mollusks and their importance to our ecosystem. 100% of your tax-deductible contribution will be used where it’s needed to best support our daily Mission to connect people to the natural world through their love of shells and the marvelous animals that create them.

Special Offer!
