Overview
The old Dutch House on Prince Street, Pettah (Colombo 11) which houses this museum was built in the latter part of the 17th century and was initially the residence of Count August Carl Van Ranzow along with five other houses of the elite.
Today, the sides of the street are filled to bursting point with boutiques and stores of various traders. The restoration of this building commenced in 1977 and was completed in 1981. This museum was opened to the public in 1982.
This building embodies the unique architectural features of a colonial Dutch town house. The museum, while displaying the Dutch legacy with the artefacts viz. furniture, ceramics, coins, arms, etc., also portrays facets of contemporary life and culture.
