Travel Texas: Where to find one of the largest shell collections in the state



TX – If you’re heading south down 288 toward Lake Jackson, be sure to stop by the Center for the Arts & Sciences in Clute, TX. From a walk back in history, to reaching for the stars, the center has something for everyone. It’s home to the Brazosport Museum of Natural Science. There you will come across one of the largest shell collections on display in the state of Texas.

Volunteer, Patty Humbird has been involved with the museum for quite some time, and an avid shell collector. She said “The person that originated this museum was Mildred Tate. She was a beachcomber. What her vision was to have a place where mostly children could come and learn able the shells of the area.”
