Condition of the museum is on the verge of "destruction" and interior lighting and ventilation feels like in a mountain cave. Only one lady officer provide English explanation or answer to questions. Should the government will pay attention to the status of this important place?

Not the best site in jaffna but a couple of interesting artefacts to see. Not much information on the exhibits, but for a region so recently at peace, was surprised to see any thing at all. Located on a quiet street and incorporated it on a walk through the northern part of town.

This is one of the worst museums I've ever visited. Just a collection or artefacts with a perfunctory label and absolutely no descriptions anywhere in the museum. There's a free guide of sorts, where you get lots of useless information like, statue, sword, box etc.
