Sigiriya Museum is at the base of the Sigiriya Rock Fortress and was established in 2009. The museum boasts an impressive collection of exhibits that belong to various periods in history - ranging from the prehistoric period to the reign of King Kashyapa when the Sigiriya Rock Fortress was constructed.
Sigiriya Museum was built with funding from the Japanese International Cooperation Agency and was completed after four years. With more than five distinctive galleries, the museum offers fascinating and unique insights into the past for visitors. The exhibits at Sigiriya museum are not limited to the artefacts—they include photographs depicting the site’s history, several informative videos and models of the fortress. The highlight of the museum is the stunning and accurate recreation of the frescoes found at the fort. Sigiriya Museum has undoubtedly been a boon for visitors unable to climb the fortress but immensely interested in exploring this UNESCO World Heritage site.
