  • One of the most interesting places I found in Sri Lanka, crammed with stuff, free entrance
  • A remarkable museum at Galle. This Museum is a part of 'World Heritage Site' of 'Dutch Fort of Galle'. Nice to watch ancient components of this museum.
  • From things exhibited here a good museum could be created.
  • Surprisingly vast range of antiques and artifacts. They make and sell jewellery too. If you are lucky you may get the chance to witness men polishing and cutting gems using very traditional methods. Very underrated place. Free entrance.
  • You will be expertly guided through the museum to arrive at the .... gem outlet!
