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.

Curated by a Goan art historian, Victor Gomes, ‘Goa Chitra Museum’ is a must-visit on a lazy afternoon. Studded with artefacts and trinkets from across the Indian peninsula, the museum is divided into three sub-museums that teleport you from the pre-colonial Hindustan lifestyle to the Portuguese-helmed heritage. Taking a 45-minute guided tour (300 INR and worth it) enlightens you about the ancient farming tools at the Goa Chitra Museum (the first sub-museum), India's first-of-its-kind vehicles of different eras at the Goa Chakra Museum (the second sub-museum), and the historic Goan culture at the Goa Cruti Museum (the third and final sub-museum).

My Tip:
Ask for a tour from one of their resident guides, Sushant. He is very passionate about shedding more light on Victor's vision and the museum. His aura is very heartwarming and he made my visit worth noting.

Best,
SID

It’s an incredible accumulation of things of past and present.
Wide range… carts, wheels, vessels, containers, office supplies and equipments, and many many categories.
The guide Gladys was very informative and elaborate.
Suggestion: the information shared about the articles should be displayed too along with the article. This will add authenticity to the museum.

Good job.
