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!

Amsterdam's Favorite Food Tour

We had a great time on our food tour with Shiv. This tour was with our family, two adults and two teens, and we all enjoyed it and thought it was one of the highlights of our trip. Shiv was very knowledgeable and also flexible to customize the trip to suit our needs. We would highly recommend him!
