“simple and quaint”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2014

the house is quaint, with very basic rooms, it has period furniture in it and its nice to see how the man lived. the entrance fee was only 300 kyats, you can not take photos inside the house itself but you can of the exterior. dont expect too much, but i enjoyed it.

“he loved his family”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2014

The location of the house is what I like best. It's on top of a hill, and maybe during his time, there are few houses near it. This is a place for a person who value privacy and quality time for his family. Bogyoke Aung San may be the busiest person in Myanmar in his time, but this house reflect his love for meaningful engagement with his family.

“Must see museum for modern Myanmar history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

With original furniture and vintage photographs of the house and family, this museum is evocative of the early years of Myanmar's quest for independence from England, and of the childhood of Aung San Suu Kyi. A peaceful spot in the busy city, well worth the vsiit.

“Beautiful colonial house with simple museum telling the history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2014

An oasis with a sad history a family with an exceptional man assassinated and a son drowned in the adjacent lake. The house and garden are being preserved and we recommend as a must to visit to learn the sad history of Myanmar.

“Simple. History.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2014

+ It was a good experience to see the house, the old family photos and have a glimpse of how they lived their lives in the past. And the old car!

Nothing much to see, though. 30 minutes and you're done.

- You have to be barefooted.
