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!

Singapore’s Food Tour: The 10 Tastings

Our Singapore food tour with William was excellent. William offered us a wonderful view of the diversity of Singapore neighborhoods and their foods. His pacing of activities, his attention to every detail and his focus on our needs made our food tour an experience to remember. It is rare to find a tour guide who you consider a friend after three hours together - but we now count William among our friends. Please don't miss this opportunity to see Singapore through the eyes of a terrific guide.
