  • This is not a large museum but it was well presented and interesting as was the entire area of Polonnaruwa. Visit the museum but spend most of the time available out amongst the many historical sites ...  more »
  • Museum was good as it gave me information about this place. Much historical pieces preserve in the museum. My guide showed me the lay out of the entire place which was located inside the museum. 
  • An excellent museum to compliment your visit to the archaeological site. Has reconstructions of what the city once looked like, together with some amazing bronze statuettes that have been recovered.

  • The museum building must have once been very beautiful, but it's been run down now. It smells of mold, and the pieces are very badly curated, which is unfortunate because it has high potential.
