A Place to see some excellent artefacts, also connecting with artists. The place also hosts music concert once in a while, which adds colour to the place. Must thank the owner Victor and his wife for putting up the place together

As the founder of the museum, Victor Hugo Gomez, explained to us, the purpose of the museum was to preserve as much local history as possible by collecting original (restored as needed) implements. Thefounder has undertaken this task on his own and does not receive any government funding for his efforts. He has quite a collection and it is housed very nicely. A guided tour is worth it as it will provide more insight as to the use of many of the implements. We were also treated to a brief folkloric music and dance show as part of our tour. This museum also has a very nice gift shop with well priced items.

Very interesting look back over Goa's past. Well put together and still being extended to add room for more old carriages.

Really interesting museum that is also used for occasional concerts/dinners. We went there twice to see a Beatles tribute band and a couple of jazz singers, both of which were excellent, as was the food. Fascinating collection of artifacts from rural Goa and a beautiful building.

A great museum showcasing ancient and traditional artifacts of rural Goa. It is a must visit for those who stays at South Goa. One can approach it from Colva, Benaulim or Madgaon by cab, auto or even by local bus.
You can get a glimpses of the rich agrarian culture of Goa by visiting this ethnographic museum. Importance is given to different trades practiced in Goa. A guide of the museum elaborately described about the artifacts associated with different trades.
A 16 feet high coconut oil grinding implement is the key attraction of this museum. A gallery for different means of transportation is in the making which will definitely add glamour to this museum in the future. The museum is well decorated and maintained.
So, do not miss the opportunity to visit Goa Chitra while visiting beautiful and charming Goa.
