Lovingly curated by Victor Hugo Gomes over many years, this small museum showcasing Goa's agriculture, Portuguese living, and India wide transport, is short and sweet.

The joy is talking with Victor who describes his 30-year+ odyssey to collect, catalogue, and display the unique items and the travails of destructive cyclones, false promise politicians, and the apathy of Goans taken in by shallow tourism.

The Caine Family from Fiji love visiting museums, and we're really glad to have met a true Goan in Victor.

Feel truly lucky to have gone to this museum(s), and witnessed the massive collection, that teaches one so much about Goa's history, culture and social systems. The museum guide was wonderful and had many interesting stories. It was also such a delight to talk with Mr Victor Gomes, the founder and curator of the museum, the man behind the collection. Just within a 15 minute conversation, Victor amazed us with his unique insight and perspective into the need of cultural documentation and preservation of traditional knowledge systems.
Would definitely recommend Goa Chitra to everyone interested in knowing and exploring beyond Goa's beaches.

Loved this place for type of collection. This is a private museum offering guided tours. They have 3 parts inside u can choose to see any of ur choice and pay accordingly. Full tour is 300 rs per person.
One hour is enough if its not crowded. There is a wheel and cart museum, another is about goan history and 3rd is utensils and agree tools.

Visited as part of an organised tour...a step back into time...so many things collected from many locations giving an insight into the development of Goa. It was a fascinating time...would have liked more..staff were polite & keen to show you the history of the area....it has to be said this man has a passion that is almost to the extreme limited only by the funds they have to preserve artifacts found or donated to his cause....well worth the time to visit & take a peek into the ares history...that would have been lost forever without the efforts of Victor Hugo Gomes....Excellent
