The Old Town Hall Museum

Main Street Roundabout, Colombo 1

  • Open roughly 9 AM to 6 PM

At the end of Main Street, Pettah, there is a forgotten museum. The Old Town Hall Museum houses a variety of very heavy memorabilia from the city's past - steam-rollers, street signs, printing presses, manhole covers. It's both mundane and wonderful, housed in an open and elegant space, ignored by the swirling commerce around.

Once visited the place at dusk. There's a museum of sorts upstairs inside the building too, and it has some very creepy wooden carvings of the town council members from the early days… Very creepy and fascinating at the same time, has some old typewriters and stuff as well.

Leaving Fort, head North towards Pettah. At the Khan Clock Tower, turn right and head down Main Street. Main Street ends at a roundabout. The Old Town Hall is directly to your right, and the museum space is on the right side of the building.
