I could figure out large collections of historical importance exhibited in the gallery. The people of the medieval period were known for their patriotism. Collection of objects ranging from stones to shards of antiquities dating back to the Buddhist period until the period of Islamic monarchy was found here.
The structure was under renovation and offered for the people to visit by the third and incumbent President of the Maldives, Mohamed Nasheed. I personally felt that the place is must-visit for every tourist as there are many important historical objects that can be extremely useful in understanding the history.
With the Sultan Park changed from a beautiful place to a haunted monument, it gives reminiscences of the past when it was filled with a lot nature and wild animals offering a peaceful environment for people. Worth over US$7.8 million, the Maldives National Museum presents a true insight to the culture and history of Maldives.
By the time I finished the visit, it was getting dark and I have to move to visit other places of my interests.
