Colombo, Sri Lanka

Visit National Museum of Colombo

National Museum of Colombo, also commonly known as the Sri Lanka National Museum is the largest museum in Sri Lanka and is one of the premier cultural attraction in the capital Colombo. The brightly white-painted institution was established in 1877 by Sir William Henry Gregory, the British Governor of Ceylon (Sri Lanka) at the time, and now it is home to a collection of valuable and historically important objects. The grounds are adorned with lush banyan trees and at the entrance of the museum, visitors can see a large 9th-century stone Buddha. Inside the building, culture buffs will encounter the regalia of the country, including the throne and crown of the Kandyan monarchs, as well as galleries of carvings, statuary, antique demon masks or 19th-century reproductions of English paintings. A visit to the museum is a great introduction of Sri Lanka’s history before making trips to the Ancient Cities and Kandy.
