How to Reach National Museum

It is important to know how to reach National Museum for all tourists looking forward to a trip to this monument. This museum is an important reminder of Ceylonese history in the Dutch Colonial era and a very frequently visited tourist spot.

Bandaranaike International Airport in Colombo, Sri Lanka is a one hour drive away from Colombo Dutch Museum. The distance of thirty kilometers is a breeze and it is worth knowing how to reach National Museum from Bandaranaike International Airport. The easiest way is definitely to take E03 Highway and follow it straight past Ragama and Peliyagoda to reach the monument. But this route has tolls along its course. A faster route might be to take E03 Highway and then peel off to Canal Road and follow it straight to the mansion. Popular traveling options include Tuk-Tuk rides and cabs.

A similar approach to how to reach National Museum from Colombo Harbor, which is the closest harbor to town, is applicable. The best route is to take AC6 Highway, but its use is restricted. A smarter route might be to take Colombo Port Main Road to AC20 and then move onto Darley Road via AC6. This thirty-minute journey (by car) is roughly eight and a half kilometers away from Colombo Harbor.  

Another solution to how to reach National Museum is to take a train to Fort Railway station and take a cab. The common routes include AC6, A2, and A4 Highways. The Tuk-tuk rides are particularly famous here and offer city-wide tour packages.
