This Museum (Martin Wickramasinghe Folk Museum Complex) also known as Museum Koggala, however, first and foremost, this is a Museum-estate of the famous writer and literary figure Martin Wickramasinghe (1891 - 1977). This is one of the few museums in the South (other museums in the South can only be found in Halle), and very decent. Here the writer was born and grew up.

The Museum is a complex area and several buildings, and is divided into 5 main sections: the house where the writer was born; hall of life; meditation center Samadhi; the Museum of popular culture and restore the environment. The exhibition includes objects from the life of Sri Lankans, works of art and Handicrafts, costumes, and, of course, wooden dolls and masks. Many of the exhibits are the personal things of the writer. Interesting and the garden of the estate. There is also a shop selling books, including and in Russian.

💵 Entrance fee / ticket price: 200 rupees (refer to the currency of Sri Lanka, the exchange rate).

🕐 While working: 09:00 – 17:00.

🚶 How to get there: the Museum is located in Koggala the Fortress in front of the hotel (the Museum on the map Koggala). The entrance to the Museum is 100 metres from the main road Matara Road. To get here from other resorts in the South of Sri Lanka on the buses that constantly ply between the cities of Galle and Matara.

How to get to cinnamon plantations in Koggala?
And about the spice gardens tell, please, - except in Matale, because they are still in there somewhere? Maybe there's a smaller garden, not as expensive, but with all the same trees? ...

You, apparently, about cinnamon island? If so, there carry on a boat during a Safari on the lake. But not encouraging on this score. Though I did not swim myself but had read enough reviews what is Scam and what sort of high prices. Not worth to buy anything there, as in the garden of spices there. All write that the prices are very high, and the same can be bought on markets or in supermarkets much cheaper. I personally was convinced when I visited the spice garden somewhere in the vicinity of Kandy.
By the way, not only in the gardens trying to breed our brother. Once on the market in Galle some"random good passer" was trying to lure to the trays with a frantic prices on spices. All very nicely laid out there, spices extols and 100 meters in the same market it is sold almost half. So that stands out, especially when you want to apply "well-wishers". ...

I fly to Sri Lanka for the first time in mid-September.Now how can we reach Tangalle to Nuwara Ella, want to climb Adams Peak. ...

If you're talking about the buses, as far as I know, directly any way. You either need to go via Matara or Colombo. I would go through Colombo, as I am sure that there are buses run more frequently than in Matara, but can themselves be checked. Ie, take the bus from Tangalle to Matara, there at the bus station and go looking for the bus to Nuwara Eliya, if such in the near future, take the bus on to Colombo, where she will quickly switch to N. Uh. At the time it will take half a day. ...

It is not clear where you plan to get to the Peak of Adam, or To Nuwara Eliya. From Ovary the Peak is also need to go and go
If you want to climb Adam's Peak, then you need to go to Nuwara Eliya and Hatton and from there again or bus or tuk-tuk. And the bus to Hatton is from Colombo, are often. On the way from Tangalle is guaranteed to spend the whole day.
Via Matara to-Peak common way longer, and well, considering the road... But if you still need to get to Novara, then in Matara, there will be, at best, towards evening. ...

You're right, Adam's Peak the best of Hatton, just there doing nothing at all because, in principle, N.Uh. a good place to crash to just walk around there a day and then to the peak. But it is the author of the question to solve, of course.
About to reach in half a day I really got excited. So if you estimate one hour to go to Matara, then 5 hours to Colombo, and plenty to N.Uh. If early Wake up (5 hours), we can before dark and drive. Still advise to go to Colombo on a small private buses-Express (such seats 20) but not in the usual large. They go nonstop and very quickly all places sedentary. Not sure there are such from Matara, Galle but on this 3 hours before Colombo was reached. If anything, from Tangalle to Galle there are direct buses (as well as to Colombo), but as I recall is slow. ...
