A very good museum depicting Lankan history

Its a very good museum, housed in a grand colonial bungalow at the centre of the City. From the museum, the Town Hall Gardens, ID Square & new NCPA are at walking distance. The museum is nicely organized into different sections and well-kept with brief info given on all display items.
