Get an insight to the culture of Sri Lanka at Martin Wickramasinghe Folk Museum Complex, and learn about the famous writer’s life. Martin Wickramasinghe chose Sinhalese to be his primary language, and worked hard to promote its traditions and culture through literature. The cabin where Mr. Wickramasinghe grew up has now been converted into this museum, which displays a chronicle of his life and his written manuscripts, presented among his well-preserved furniture and personal effects. After the cabin, visit the exhibit devoted to Sri Lankan folklore, a special project of Wickramasinghe's. It hosts collections of tools, folk puppetry, masks, musical instruments, and utensils. Take a picnic in the grounds surrounding the small complex, which provides an enchanting rural landscape.
