National Art Gallery (Cultural Museum)
At 106 Ananda Kumaraswamy mawatha, this Gallery on the edge of Viharamhadevi park houses a rather humdrum assortment pf Portraits of Sri lanka's independence pioneers and heads od state. The Changeing Programme of Shows by contemporary Sri Lankan artists is sometimes more interesting. Open 08.00 - 17.00 Daily.

Natural History Museum
Housed in the same building as the National Art Gallery, this collection is a hit and miss affair with stuffed birds and animals displayed in cases showing their natural habitat, and sections dealing with Sri Lanka's geology climate, and plant life. The most Striking display is of an elephant's Skeleton, and there are also displays which focus on some of the country's ambitious hydro-electric and irrigation engineering schemes.
Open 09.00 - 17.00 Daily.
