When it was first built, the Central Point building was the tallest in the city. Restored after the damage it suffered in the 1996 bombing, the building is one of the best examples of Greco-Roman architecture in Colombo, especially the lovely atrium with its winding stairs. Also, the chandelier is supposed to be one of the tallest in Asia. There's a little museum on currency inside, but it's not really worth visiting. Most of the money it displays is currently in circulation. In fact, many tourists wonder why its there at all. On the upside, it's free. But there is a cafe inside the building that is supposed to be nice.
