NC Shell Show

Cape Fear Museum Wilmington, NC
The state’s 40th annual gathering of shell collectors, exhibitors and enthusiasts returns to Cape Fear Museum of History and Science September 19th and 20th.

The 2015 North Carolina Shell Show, co-sponsored by the N.C. Shell Club and Cape Fear Museum, will feature hundreds of seashells – remnants of bivalves and gastropods alike – collected far and wide by club members and other exhibitors. Participants from Pennsylvania to Florida will install museum-quality displays.

The Shell Show will feature scientific and arts-and-crafts exhibits in more than 20 categories, from North Carolina collections and single shells, to molluscan natural history and shell photography. Rare, beautiful, large, tiny, freshwater, saltwater, shell anomalies and fossils will fill several spaces within the Museum, including the lobby.
