Hoods Tower Museum, Trincomalee Reviews

  • Museum had a big collection. Things we have never seen. Navy Officer explained them one by one which was very useful. view from the tower was amazing. We could see the whole area from there. I think that is the only tower in that area. Museum set up is good. Had under ground section as well. Saw many boats and vehicles used by lTTE. It was worth watching.

  • Nice place to spend your stay in Trincomalee. As it is controlled under navy, they give a full informative description about the museum and the importance of the Trincomalee as a naval way point.

  • A must see place. you will witness historical weapons & maritime equipment. Hoods Tower is a place to see the beauty of the trinco bay too.

  • Very good place for learn naval education and historical events in sri lanka navy

  • Perfect place to see the trinco harbour and inner Harbour area. you can see the ancient ships photographs of the ships and parts of the ships in the museum and they will edit about them. they are boats and other wepons that caught from the LTTE terrorist during the war time
