  • Under repairs, a hand-written note warns people to stay away for their own safety. The edifice is falling apart and the windows are broken. Doesn't look like it's going to open any time soon.  more »
  • This 17th century building is at this moment under renovations. Too bad we couldn’t see more about the Dutch history in Colombo in this place.  more »

  • Unfortunately it's closed for renovations these days. Not sure when they will open it again. However it's good to note that if you're intending to take photos or videos you'll have to purchase a licence at the entrance. So keep that in mind when you're making your budget too. The licences are separately sold for photos and videos and both will cost you around Rs. 600. Hope this will be open soon.
  • The museum is located in the hear of Sri lanka's traditional shopping area. Its too busy to use a car, so make sure you walk. It's an off the beaten path Activity in Colombo and I recommend doing it. Just make sure you call ahead since they are renovating the place (see image).
