Nothing special, but its a part of your Lion Rock Site...At the entry point where u buy tickets for the World Heritage Site - Museum is included in the same ticket so spend some time here before your climb up the Lion Rock.

The museum is worth a visit as it goes into the history of the rock. It explains the archaeological finds and their relevance. Their are beautiful gardens to walk in but be aware of crocodiles in the water.
