  • Unfortunately, the lady who took care of there is little point in the tour today and chased them us almost literally by the museum. But.. then we were allowed to do everything again on our own convenience, read the stories in which the masks were staged, they see again and we could enjoy it. In the workshop next to the museum are still beautiful masks carved and painted. In the store are several masks for sale at reasonable prices. So all in all, despite the difficult start, well worth a visit!

  • Good museum with nice mask and description. I also could see the person doing the masks. They have a nice shop as well. Good place.
  • A very good collection of traditional masks. Ambalangoda is famous for its traditional masks.
  • Best Mask collection in down south
  • Quite interesting little Museum and unfortunately a shop with masks at "touristy" price. And stage of all the guides.

  • Mini-museum is not very well maintained, but free. The store is better, and you can buy a relatively good mask. Mini Museum in pepper neglected, but free. The store is already better and you can buy relatively good masks.
