Overview
The Galle National Museum is established in the oldest Dutch building of the Galle Fort, constructed in 1656. It was created in order to develop awareness among the public on the traditional cultural heritage of Southern Sri Lanka. The Department of National Museums developed this museum and it was opened to the public on 31 March 1986.
The Galle National Museum displays a wide range of archaeological and anthropological objects inherited in the Southern region. A collection of traditional masks used in various rituals, collection of ornamental objects made up of turtle shells, ancient wooden carvings and a Beeralu collection are important exhibits that attract visitors at the museum.
The influence of the Dutch is depicted with the equipments used in Dutch ships that came to the Galle Harbour. Large water vessels, V.O.C. porcelain objects and arms and weapons used by the Dutch soldiers are among the exhibits. The Galle National Museum plays an important role as a centre of education in the Southern region.
