SLPA Maritime Museum opened daily

The largest maritime museum in Sri Lanka will be opened to the public throughout the week as decided by the Sri Lanka Ports Authority, a media release from the Ministry of Ports Development and Shipping said.

The Museum has been constructed by refurbishing an old building within the Port premises which has been constructed by the Dutch in 1676.

The refurbishment has cost Rs. 25 million. The exhibits in the Museum includes historical milestones from the era of the arrival of Prince Vijaya to Ceylon, the arrival of Princess Sanghamitta with the Sri Maha Bodhi, arrival of Chinese Buddhist monk Fa Hsein in the 5th Century and other historical developments in the Portuguese, Dutch and British times.

The SLPA states that the Museum will be opened from 3 pm to 7 pm daily and from 10 am to 7 pm on holidays and Poya days. There will not be an entrance fee.
