    Because I wanted to buy the ambalangoda mask first, meaning study of, stopped by the Museum. It took about an hour if you explained to the women's Museum with questions. If you just look at just 10 minutes or less. No admission charge, but donations box. Book description of the masks are selling here is English version is very well made. RS 500 crore and is recommended for those who are interested in cheap. Following is a tour of the Studio, but am surprised at the lightness of balsa wood. And to paint the two kinds of natural and chemical that I learned. Compared to shops around the shop on the second floor is a full price, but high quality. I met around the Studio went back immediately. Can we use credit cards. Bring cardboard boxes and packing tape was going to deposit luggage, packed in their own. Got a newspaper. And painted balsa wood masks of type are amazed at the height of the technology.

    And Kamen used magic for the treatment of disease is rather small, but zurari. Tend to be masked in the souvenir shop of the ordinary and a little bit different. 2nd floor, such as carved wooden masks and the souvenirs. Also, like outside on the ground floor of the garage where Kamen Rider productions was done. A workshop also seems to be done.

    Wonderful collection of masks to be purchased. Perfect souvenirs for foreigners. You can watch the masks being made at the work shop right next to the museum. Several workers carve and paint the masks while you watch.please be mindful not to disturb them while they work too.
