Lovely and valuable place to visit. Must visit.
Great museum where you learn about history. Friendly staff and a must see if you are in the neighborhood.
Valuable place to see but in these days it is closed..
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.
