There may be no one manning the “museum” when you visit, but you’re welcome to explore on your own. The folk artist/poet/proprietor/chef Egberth Donovan has created this splendidly cluttered, open-air assemblage of shells. Shells comprise floors and walls and have been made into shell boats and shell mobiles. Lots of wise words scribbled on boards and surfaces are scattered about as well. The museum even has a restaurant on the second floor, serving local lobster and regional dishes to those who call and reserve a table.
