Museums in Galle

  • The Historical Mansion Museum is a free museum full of vintage stuff of the old Galle. It is owned by the 80 year old Mr. Abdul who bought the house about 40 years ago. It was then restored. Therefore, it is also the oldest building of the Galle Dutch Fort!
  • The Maritime Archeology Museum is a beautiful museum full of high quality exhibits. There is a lot of information available, so this museum won’t get boring anytime soon. With only €4,50 entrance fee, it’s pretty cheap too!

The City of Lights by Night Private Tour

Chole was superb! Hoesntly the best tour guide I’ve ever experienced. Had a few difficulties getting to the meet up spot and she was soo understanding and thoughtful! She went her way and assisted me throughout through messages. The tour was very informative, fun and you don’t even get tired during the two hour tour. Thank you again for a great experience!

Baroque Venice: Museum & Harp Lesson Experience

What a wonderful experience! I felt completely disconnected from time, and got the very special opportunity to play the Harp. Beautiful moment!
