National Museum is a small museum located next to Sultan park with limited collections. Prices seems high for what you get to see.

Nothing really special or interesting there as the country doesn't have a very long history. But good to have a look if you have time.

It includes an oyster shell the size of a dinner plate and clothes of various sultans. Also the skeleton of a rare whale, the first computer on the island, Chinese export ware, etc.

Walk around Male and you will eventually find a building that is completely out of tune with the rest of Maldives. That is the National Museum. If you so choose to step in, be prepared to pay 50 rufiyaas (about $5) because you are a...More

Cool place, with some great historical records on Maldivian currency and the old coral mosques. Cost 100 Rf to get in, well worth the visit if you're a history buff. Do you like to learn about the past sultans and royalty? If so, this is...More

For a foreigner, the ticket price is not cheap, > 6 USD. The collection was very limited, and only a few pieces are really from ancient times (i.e. before 16th century). Even the first power generator, first computer, etc. made their ways into the collection....More

The size of the museum is really small. I expect to see more about Maldives history in past time especially during Buddhist’s reign and before Islam took over but cant find anything.

We were here about 8 years ago and unimpressed. Now they've completely remodeled in a very fine building. Even has an elevator if you ask. New are the police museum and the postage stamp exhibit. The rest of the museum has artifacts from ancient to...More
