The museum has a great open air style to it, but sadly looking dilapidated in places. Nevertheless, worth a visit to obtain background information on the history of the rock and the archaeological finds. Interesting photos of late 19 century archaeological expeditions. Also you there are copies of the frescos which you are not allowed to take photos of on the rock itself, but the museum allowed us to take pictures of the copies.

For a museum, it is being maintained poorly. There were ants running around the walls too!!
Love the artefacts that were located in their gallery room.

sigiriya museum is a very important place to visit every visitor before climb the rock. one of the best archaeological Museum shows the in situ conservation about the historical remains and very informative. Sigiriya visit is not just a climb a rock. there are so many information to understand about the development of the ancient civilization and engineering techniques. this museum is an ideal place to gain this all information. also this is a great place for the people with disabilities to climb the whole rock. you can see so many replicas and models of the real site and easy accessibility even wheelchairs users. if anyone just want to visit museum there is a separate ticket for the less price.

If you climb Lion Rock (30USD per person) the museum is included - making the museum worthwhile. However, if you wish to just view the museum, it’s 1,800LKR (10USD) per person which is ridiculous for what it is. Yes it is interesting, but I would not recommend as it is a small museum and very overpriced.

As with many museums here it is not extensive but comes as part of the rock entrance so might as well go around. The best bit is probably the reproduction of the wall paintings on the rock face. The building itself is quite interesting as it seems to have been constructed around trees.
There’s lots of wildlife and birds in the area - monkeys and special birds
