“Not really much to see”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2013

Not much to see, mostly about dive sites, old fishing catamarans and there was no aircon so we left with headaches.A few interesting things but if I was making recommendations I would say not to bother (and Im a sailor so Im particularly interested in this area).

“Very Interesting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2013

It was very interesting with articles explaining the items on display, it is over three levels and the building is so well build, on the way out look at the thickness of the doors outside and the old lamps.

“High Quality Exhibits”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013 via mobile

We spent a few hours here. The introductory video was excellent and very educational. The artifacts on display, some ancient, were very interesting. This is a high quality museum. For $5, it's a deal.

“So well done”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2013

An exceptioal experience. No idea who curated this space or designed it but they have done an amazing job.
The rooms flow so well, the space is enourmouse and everything is so well described and factually correct.
The movie before you reach the display space is not so exceptional but informative.
A must see in Galle.
