Unless u are a big fan of history or keen to familiarize with the Aung San's family history, ten minutes will be sufficient to complete the tour of the double-storeyed house. Foreigners need pay an entrance fee, and staff wasn't helpful and friendly.

Moving photographs and historic documents in the garden takes you back to the assassination of General Aung San. Inside the house, it's stunning to see General' Aung San's bedroom and living areas. We went on Martyr's day, so the grief of visitorswas very real.

Though there are many generals in our country (in the Military) if someone says Bogyoke then people automatically feel / understood it represents to Bogyoke Aung San. BIA = Burma Independence Army was very firstly founded by Aung San and he was the general of that army and people and his comrade called him Bogyoke... More

This was Aung San's family home for the last two years of his life, and it is furnished as if they were still living there. It's a beautiful colonial-style house with turrets and lots of open space.

Very interesting large home to see where General Aung San lived before he was assassinated. The furniture, clothes etc are like it was when he lived there. It is a great history lesson on the kind of person he was.

If you want souvenirs or if you are like me and you're constantly on the look out from fabrics to buy, this is the place to go. I was in heaven. The fabrics were really cheap.

Helped us understand more of, and get a real feel for, the recent history of Myanmar that led to the rule by the Military Junta and the recent 'thawing' and opening up of the country.

It is great to be able to visit a museum that has many of the furniture and effects as it was when General Aung San was alive and especially interesting to see the room Aung San Su Ky and her brothers lived.
