    Museum of Goa has a lot of artwork
    Museum of Goa has a large collection of paintings, small statues and has a small boat which depicts the time when Hindu gods were taken away from Goa. Along with that there is a documentary. The prices are reasonable.

    Art to see and feel Goa
    Tucked away at the end of a dusty road, this is a true treasure of Goa. The sculptures, the art, the history is all here. Much bigger than I expected. They are truly proud to show of their carefully placed items to maximise the exposure to enhance your thoughtful experience. The sculpture garden is a must to browse. There is a cafe and an area for children. Loved it.

    Hidden Gem in Goa
    A very well organized museum. It had 2 floors full of various paintings and statues. The best thing about each artifacts is about a small story mentioned related to that artifact next to it, which gives meaning to the artifacts and brings more interest in it. The best of all is "Goa's Ark", a boat with Hindu Gods and its story. Except one room where kids can do art work no other rooms have centralized AC which makes bit unconformable mainly during afternoon and in summer. But don't give it a miss if you are art lover or not, must visit place. It also has a small café and souvenir store.

    Super modern art gallery
    This is a superb gallery of exciting and interesting modern art. Anyone with an interest in modern art who is in Goa should take time out to visit. It’s a smart 3 storey gallery with additional outside terraces and a cafe. Views over a forested valley. (Don’t be put off that it is sited at the far end of the Pilerne industrial estate - it’s worth it). Some works are for sale.

This is Private Musuem, costs 300/- per person. Founders father C.S.Kerkar was a good artist and his paintings of Women are respectful. However can't say that about founder's paintings they are bordering on 'X' rating. Commerical = wants to sell you art works at steep prices. Very strict with time, lights switched off at 5pm inspite of being inside and refused to switch on. If money raining on you - can go, else AVOID.

Museum of Goa is NOT a museum, even though you see signs all over the place advertising it as such! If I were to be generous, I would describe it as a retail outlet for the works of Subodh Kerkar. If I were to be brutally honest, I would paint it as temple to the narcissism of Mr. Kerkar. Art is about honesty and to describe this place as Museum of Goa is not only. misleading, it is dishonest!

Alert! This is a commercial art gallery, disguised as a museum. After paying a steep entry fee of Rs. 200 per head, one expects to see historical or modern relics encompassing the rich history of this state. Surprise, surprise! It is a commercial display space for paintings and sculptures, most exhorbitantly priced. And imagine, you pay to enter! It's like a designer store charging you an entry fee!

Widely advertised throughout Goa, the name 'Museum of Goa' gives the notion that it is an all encompassing tourist highlight, and possibly state run. Highly misleading, and a waste of time and money, if all you wanted was to learn about Goan history or culture.

One of the must visit place of Goa depicting art from different fields and route to the museum also well directed with boards placed at every crossing.
Photography is allowed and you need atleast 1 hour to cover the 3 storied museum building.
There is one cafeteria at backyard where you will find fine art students trying their hands and making new models.

It was very hard to find a contemporary art gallery in all our 4 weeks in India. When we came across MOG we couldn’t wait to see what was there. And it was very good. We had such a good time looking at all the installations; you can’t like all styles of art but we could appreciate all what we saw.
The café was simple and nice. Good value and pleasant surrounds.
The gallery shop had plenty to offer and reasonable prices as well.
As it’s located in an industrial area, there were some preparations going on next door for a festival float. Looks like there’s art all round!
