Information Centre and Maritime Archaeology Museum
Old Dutch Warehouse, Galle
It comprised of an adaptation of interior spaces to accommodate the Maritime Archaeology Museum, without disturbing the authentic historic character and architecture of the existing warehouse building at the world heritage site of Dutch fort, Galle. It is the intention to house the seafaring history of Si Lanka and its rich experience endowed by transoceanic connectivity that enriched the multi-cultural ethos of the country for over 300 years, which was translated into material representations and visual medium through dioramas, audio-visuals and printed trilingual presentations and displays. The interior of museum galleries has been created after properly conserving the maritime artifacts and exhibiting them with necessary information being arranged.
