The Shell Grotto is one of the world's most mysterious places: a series of underground rooms and passageways covered by 2000 sq ft of exquisite shell mosaic. Discovered in 1835, nobody knows who created it, although many believe it is a 2000 year-old Temple. The Mystery Museum encourages visitors to draw their own conclusions.
