We hired our own tuk tuk and driver to take us about galle. It was much better than being herded around in a group! We took our time and ended up having a private tour from a well informed staff member. It was great seeing the vast array of tool and implements that were used long ago. He also told us a little about the man mostly responsible for collecting much of the stock. We also enjoyed seeing the gems without feeling the pressure to buy anything.

This gets a great review in lonely planet but it a pretty limited museum. A couple of interesting snippets about local fishing technique, boats and wildlife. But a 20min visit is enough. Which is fine at the price but could be more

If you are in Fort Galle you can´t miss de maritime archeology museum, it has a good structure, and has some interesting stuff from the old maritime activities in Sri Lanka. Some of the history of the 2004 tsunami.

I liked seeing the models of the ships, the video playback, the weapons used in the ships, cannons etc.
