  • It was nice to visit with a 17th century building in Colombo to Dutch history. However, it was not worth 500rs. Staff was uninterested (but Sat on a Chair in the hallway) and museum pieces were poorly lit and very poorly maintained. In this way, do not keep it long vol. pity.

  • In the historical Museum has collected many fun exhibits and the life and culture of Sri Lanka during the colonial era. Attention also deserves a building occupied by the exposition is the former residence of the Dutch Governor, built in the 17th century.

  • First of all, dear reader, THERE WAS NEVER A DUTCH PERIOD IN COLOMBO, LET ALONE SRI LANKA. Yes they came like pirates and had something like embassy or a sort of business area with some dutch soldiers...  read more »
  • Literally known as an urban house built by a dutch governer in the 17th century. Then during british period it has been an armstore
  • Very beautiful and hope it's preserved
  • Not worth paying 500. It's not even maintaining
  • Should have to maintain more. Damn sure no one aware that there is a place called dutch museum in the hard to colombo
