We went to the Pita market and it was very close. As the oldest building in Colombo, we decided to stop. It seems to be abandoned...but a guide came to us and showed us some outbuildings with a hint of grapefruit...like a doll meeting room that represents a meeting...the building is amazing, but it needs major repairs . They asked for your will, we went to 4, we gave 200, which is 1 euro.
The Old City Hall is located near the Beta Market. It’s a beautiful building, but it’s now open as an art gallery or museum, but we didn’t get in before opening hours.
Walk to the Old City Hall near the Beta Market, where old steam engines, cars and other equipment and city road signs are displayed on the first floor. At first, I didn't know it. I thought I had walked into a place where sundries were piled up, but when I saw the layout and cabinet display, I believed it was also an attraction. After groping to find the stairs, the small museum on the second floor was locked after going upstairs. The staff saw us coming and enthusiastically opened the door for us to visit. Inside is a wax museum, which reproduces the scene of the first municipal meeting in Colombo. There is also a place for tourists to insert and take photos directly opposite. This is a free-to-visit scenic spot. According to the staff's request, sign on the tourist signature book. We are still the first batch of tourists today, and it is already noon. The staff also specially brought us to a window and pulled down the wooden shutters. The street view outside the window was vivid and unique. Of course, in the face of such a warm service, you still have to tip, and I am willing to pay 100 rupees to see the happy faces of the service staff.
The building includes the city office and the courthouse. Although the machinery, tractors, road signs and kerosene delivery vans on the first floor are all old, it is still interesting. The second floor is a small museum with some old cars and utensils on display. Going inside, there is a wax museum, a reenactment of all the members of the first board of directors of Sri Lanka representing that period of British colonial rule, with a place for visitors to insert a photo directly opposite
It is said that it was a city government office, now a small museum, it is nice and the building is good
