Martin Wickramasinghe Folk Museum

Martin Wickramasinghe Folk Museum
The Martin Wickramasinghe Folk Museum is a memorial museum situated in Koggala in Galle District, Sri Lanka. It is dedicated to Martin Wikramasinghe (1890-1976), an eminent Sri Lankan author who is often acclaimed as the father of modern Sinhala literature.

The house in which Martin Wikramasinghe lived was converted into a memorial museum in 1981 (Rambukwella, 2014). Many objects used by Wikramasinghe are displayed in the museum along with other objects related to the folk tradition of Southern Sri Lanka (Rambukwella, 2014).
