We spent a peaceful few hours in the museum and in the gardens here. The open building is stunning and it is filled with a huge range of historic exhibits covering a lot of Sri Lanka's culture. There is a lovely coffee shop and gift shop outside.

We spent several rewarding hours viewing well-presented museum exhibits. Collection includes many fabulous artifacts displayed with helpful background information. Good introduction to Sri Lanka's history and culture. Museum coffee shop was a great place for refreshment break.

I guess it's a measure of my admiration for this type of art and the quality of the collection that I look back on the sweltering, airless few hours spent there with a high degree of pleasure. All I can say is bring water.

Glad to see the history of sri lanka, so many artefacts and information under one roof. Good to see the history of buddhism as well
