National Museum

The National Museum of Maldives lies inside the Sultan Park which used to be a part of the Sultan’s Palace on the island of Male. The Museum, however, was opened to the public in 1952 and has since seen a large number of visitors. Inside the museum, you’ll see a collection of artefacts, well-preserved galleries, Thaana-engraved pieces of wood and more.

This monument has been erected to memorialize thousands of people who lost their lives due to the Tsunami disaster. You’ll also find all the names of the victims engraved in the monument. This proves to be one of the most personal and significant things to see in all of the Maldives.
