In the basement of a restaurant on Staten Island, there’s a museum that its founder claims is the only one of its kind in the country. It's a museum of Sri Lankan culture, and its founder is 18-year-old Julia Wijesinghe. She opened the museum earlier this year, fulfilling a dream she says she's had since she was 15.
Here & Now's Robin Young speaks with Wijesinghe (@SrilankanmuseNY).
