Dutch Period Museum, Colombo Reviews - Write a Review

  • Valuable place to see but in these days it is closed..

  • Great museum where you learn about history. Friendly staff and a must see if you are in the neighborhood.

  • The two storey colonnaded building on Prince Street, Pettah (Colombo 11) which houses this museum was constructed during the Dutch occupation of Colombo (1656 - 1796) and was the formal residence of the Governor of Dutch Ceylon Thomas van Rhee (1634 - 1701) during his term of office in 1692 to 1697.

  • Good historical place i wisited

  • It is being rennovated and would be open again 6 months later. One of the staff let me in though, but then he demanded tips for explaining something I have already known.....
