Artefacts from 400 years back from the portuguese era in Goa were nicely displayed - did kinds of transportation used by people, different kinds of daily utensils used by people reflected a lot in their living - 300 INR ticket per person - was a bit inside so cab is needed

Great museum. We felt exported to centuries back. Maintained very well. The lady guide, enthusiastically explained everything very nicely. It's worth the entry fee.

Lovely local museum split into three sections - personal guide room you through each , the first being wheels , so loads of animal drawn carriages and chests etc , then a section on work and office work and life under the Portuguese and third life in the fields and cooking and farming. The are busy building a new section on farm to table which should be good . Small gift shop of local produced art etc. if you go by taxi ask them to wait as it’s difficult to get taxi back - an hour is about enough unless you want to really take your time!

Was a wonderful experience. A one person collection of 4000 items from the pre Portuguese era... very awe inspiring . A 45 mins well spent ... The guide Sushant was knowledgeable, patient with our questions and passionate about the place and each one of the items. A must go too ... Kudos to Victor Gomes !!!

One of the hidden gems in Goa - The Goa Chitra Museum. Amazing private collection of Goan history by Victor Hugo. Place looks small from outside but didn't realise how the 2 hours flew with the detailed explanation from the guides. Not a place to be missed.

It's a private museum maintained by some local people. The guides are informed and helpful. They take you through three sections. Each of them has its own charm. You can take as many photos as you want but no flash allowed. They also have a souvenir shop but we didn't visit that. It took us about an hour to visit the whole museum. It was an hour well spent.

The collections are wonderful but all exhibited items are not labelled.
Few items are self explanatory but from where they have been collected and the history behind it isn’t well captured.

They charge 300/- for the tour but the experience it offers isn’t value for money.

The guide has explained all the sections well but we felt information was limited. In a less known museum like this a story telling is important which we didn’t like atall. Movie references for explanation is fine but overtly doing that didn’t give us a nice trip overall.
