Little bit about Galle National Museum

The Galle National Museum which was constructed in 1656 is established in the oldest Dutch building of the Galle fort. The museum plays an important role as a center of education in the Southern region. The traditional cultural heritage of Southern Sri Lanka had to be open to public, in order to do so, the Department of National Museum decided to open up this museum. This museum contains a wide range of archaeological and anthropological objects inherited in Southern region. The main tourist attractions are the collection of traditional masks which were used in various rituals, collection of ornamental objects made up of turtle shells, ancient wooden carvings and a Beeralu collection. Most travelers to Galle, with the interest of history and ancient ruins, make it a point to visit this museum and learn more about history and enjoy the pleasant views and architecture.
