To come across MOG was truly an unforgettable experience. We spent the afternoon looking through amazing contemporary art across 3 floors and a rooftop, sipped on chai in their sculpture park while checking out some local artists working there, and taking home beautiful souvenirs and art pieces (yes, they have art for sale made by local artists!) Couldn't recommend it more highly. Subodh Kerkar & his team are doing an outstanding job with MOG!

This is one place that has to be a must visit when you are traveling to North Goa. Located in the industrial area at Pilerne, the museum is a very unique place with beautiful paintings and murals that showcase the beauty that Goa is. Founded by Subodh Kerkar, this is a must visit for all fans of art and culture. And do watch the short documentary they have in the theatre as well. Very inspiring words from the master himself.

I came away from this museum with a new understanding of Goa, especially its connection with the sea. It's a historical and aesthetic experience.

The best part of our trip to Goa last monsoon was our visit to this wonderful museum located in an industrial zone near Saligao.This is a private museum conceptualized by Mr.SUBODH KERKAR,a physician turned Historian.

We need to start our visit with a 15 minute video regarding the History of Goa.All the Paintings ,sculptures and photographs depict the history of Goa.....It was surprising to note that Chillies and Maize were brought by Portuguese from South America to India.It was great to see lot of paintings and sculptures regarding Fish,the staple diet of Goan people.

It was interesting to note that the concept of Motorcycle Taxis was started in Goa.A Tribute was paid to Mahatma Gandhiji,Father of our Nation.we also get to see a collection of nice oil paintings depicting the occupation of early goans.Goa's Ark stood out among all the sculptures.

We were told that Art Exhibitions are conducted here throughout the year.You have a small Coffee shop also.At the end,we can purchase some souvenirs from the Souvenir shop.we bought two fridge magnets( including one Red chilli magnet) and a small book about the Museum.
we were pleasantly surprised when we had a chance to meet Dr,SUBODH KERKAR,the brain behind this beautiful museum....on the whole,a must visit destination when you visit Goa.

Pleasantly surprised when we stopped here in our taxi as my wife wanted to actually go to another museum. The artist came over to greet me and we had a little chat. Only realized later who I had spoken with. Love the way he *-r

A delightful small art museum tucked away in Saligao, Goa. We saw the "emerging artists" show that featured artists from around the country. A lovely little gem of a museum inside and out.

We went as part of a day out and we were pleasantly suprised. I really enjoyed the place, I suggest you watch the video explaining the artist as it helped to understand the art. I am not really a tate modern type of person but I thought the museum was really thought provoking. I loved the fisherman black and white photos and if I could have got one back to the UK I would have bought one. So glad we were travelling independently as spent a lot longer than I thought we would here.
