Unnecessary wastage of time and patience. We were waiting at the main gate for half an hour to see the exhibition of the painting after paying Rs.100 and due to this we missed the other spot by the GTDC operator

A beautiful private collection of all and sundry things used in daily life in the not so distant past. Nicely displayed in sections. The latest attraction is the Goa Chakra that has collations related to transport. Not to be missed.

Visited this museum and also Goa Chakra which are at the same location. Both museums are attractive, well laid out and there is a lot to see. Our guide was very informative. It's a real step back in time.
