  • I honestly didn't know about the whole culture behind these masks. The I saw in various souvenir shops near the hotel but didn't understand. Doing a lap at this museum very well maintained I was able to know the story behind it. Definitely recommend anyone to see him to learn something about the culture of Sri Lanka

  • 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.
