The Dutch Colonial Museum is a museum of great historical value. The museum needs to charge tickets, but if the tickets are cheap, you can learn about the history of Sri Lanka during the colonial period. If you want to take pictures, you need to pay again.
Along the busy little street near the head-swept shop, we found the Dutch colonial museum on a street not far away. Purchase 500 rupees per person ( 250 rupees for cameras) and enter the building, which was then the Dutch Governor's residence, and now displays in pictures and in kind, reflecting the period of Sri Lanka's colonial rule by the Dutch. Such kindness to the colonial rule of his country, which seems to be rare in the world, may be indicative of the fact that the people and Government of Sri Lanka are not very repugnant to the history of that colonial rule. A local man was very enthusiastic about giving us a tour guide, and although our English was not as clear as he could tell, the man's perseverance was commendable. Seeing that we didn't seem to understand, he was tired of using motions to compare, eventually let us understand a lot of things. At his point, we knew the spice trees in the yard, the newborn birds in the nests of the branches, the secrets of the money hidden in the interlayers of the lockers, and, of course, the attempt to ask for tips at 100 rupees. The whole museum is well-planned, especially a green inner courtyard that makes the garden more like a mansion than a museum that bears the history of the country's colonial past.
The Dutch colonial museum is very interesting. The red building is very characteristic. Some national characteristics of the Netherlands can be seen in the museum.
The Dutch colony in Colombo exhibits quite well, with a large collection of large museums.
[Scenery] The taste of history, the scenery is beautiful.
