World’s first cinnamon museum in Matara

Plans are under way to set up a Cinnamon Museum in Mirissa, Matara. Global CEO- Ogilvy & Mather, Miles Young is building the Cinnamon Museum, the first of its kind in the world – at his holiday complex and Cinnamon plantation in Mirissa.

Over the last few years, he has conducted and commissioned extensive research, employing different groups in several countries, on the history of Cinnamon. The museum will showcase the role of Cinnamon in human history, and the role it has played in different economies throughout history.

Miles has called for support to trace a picture of the last Cinnamon bush which had been planted in Guildford Crescent, Colombo 7.

He said that, he is keen to have a copy of the pix to be displayed in the Cinnamon Museum that’s taking shape in Mirissa. Any information in this regard could be sent to or call +94 0777 352 122
