Polonnaruwa museum is exposed to theft due to malfunction of main door
It is reported to our news team that the artifacts of the Polonnaruwa museum is exposed to danger as it entry door is not functioning properly.
The museum set up in front of Parakrama Samudra is maintained by the Central Cultural Triangle.
A local visitor to the Museum is charged Rs. 50 while a foreigner is charged Rs. 3,300.
The auto sliding door at the entrance of the museum has not been repaired for years.
Although the museum is closed at 5.30 in the evening, the door automatically opens when someone reaches it, so the authorities have been using a piece of log to prevent it.
It is also reported to our news team that the CCTV system of the museum is inactive for over one year.
Visitors are not happy with the behavior of museum workers as well.
The National Museum in Colombo was also robbed twice due the negligence of its authorities.
Will the Polonnaruwa museum too face a similar destiny?
