Good place to get a glimpse into the Goan rural lifestyle and the past Portuguese era. we have to walk a lot hence elderly people could have a prob. Overall the experience is very nice and good informative guides here.

Nothing too much to see and you can also skip this if you are coming to Goa for short duration of time.

This ancestral property belonging to the Figueiredos is located off the Panjim-Margaon highway. The drive to the house is through scenic rural setting.The direction as per Google map is pretty accurate. One part of the house is an inn and the other part a museum....More

Yes it tells you a bit about Goan culture but it is cringlingly bad. Like a French theme park from the 1950's , only missing a dodgy pitch and putt. I started laughing immediately, my wife started off furious ,but, got into the irony half...More

I went to Ancestral Goa. At Ancestral Goa there are a number of places to visit such as an art gallery where one can see work done by local children and artists of State and National fame. It is great place to go.

If you just wander the streets of Goa for 30min, you would get a better understanding of rural Goan life - than visiting this place. Nothing to see, coupled with rude staff ensure that you can tell everyone to cross this off their lists.

Museum Stuff. Old daily life stuff like bed, typewriter,pots, crockery. Also visited Big Foot. Very well maintained place. Cool and silent place. Statues explain the life of Goa. Varieties of plants also there. Big Foot, Mira bai Statue is very nice.
