University museums in Sri Lanka
Nihal, Dayawansa P.

Current status of university museums in Sri Lanka was evaluated. Results of questionnaire and interview survey revealed that the majority of universities lack museums. Two universities, including the pioneer University of Colombo, possess natural history museums administrated by curators. One of the oldest, University of Peradeniya, has a geological museum without a curator. Other universities possess a museum dedicated for Muslim culture, an art museum and an engineering museum. Poor infrastructure, dearth of finance devoted in corporate plans for development, lack of curators and absence of research were identified as major weaknesses.
