About Archaeological Museum
The old British colonial administration building has recently been renovated and has an interesting collection of artwork, carvings and everyday items from Anuradhapura and other historic sites around Sri Lanka. Exhibits include a restored relic chamber, found during the excavation of the Kantaka Chetiya dagoba at nearby Mihintale, and a large-scale model of Thuparama Dagoba’s vatadage as it might have been if a wooden roof had existed.
Although the most authentic sources of history would be a visit to the dagobas, the museum holds some interesting artefacts and is a rich source of information on the heritage and culture of the place.Anuradhapura,
