“Worth a visit.”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

This is a small museum with lots of family photos. It contains the beds and cloths of Aung San and early family photos. If I have the right building it is where Aung San lived from 1945 to 1947 and where his second son died in 1953 after drowning in the pond in the garden.

“you'll meet Aung San Suu Kyi as a little girl”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

This is used to be Gen. Aung San's home and now it's Gen. Aung San museum to show their lifestyle. It was closed till 2012 and reopened as museum after democracy. It is a nice western style 2 storied house. Some photos are hanged to the wall and you'll learn the history from them... For example, Gen. Aung San wearing uniform of Japanese military ( he went to Japan to learn military operation), and Gen. Aung San's wife wearing Shan tribe's costume.
Photography is not allowed inside and you have to store it to locker.
Opening hour is 10 to 16 from Wed. to Saturday. Entrance fee is 300Kyat.
You can walk from Shwedagon Paya, though the route is not that easy or clear.

“Box ticking exercise”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

Lacking in content and information, but worth going for the historical significance of the place. Bit of a way out.

“Very interesting”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

I suggest to go to this place.
Not for package tourist and reopened to the public since a little time.
The house were the General Aung san used to live with his family.
You will understand a lot of the history of the country, and what the general, father of Aung san Su Kyi, did for it.
The place in itself is very interesting. The building, the area...

“Interesting place!”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

Lucky me, the museum was just opened since it used to be open only 1 day per year. The museum is the house where Daw Aung San Suu Kyi was born and sent her first years. The house is still in a good state, despite the earthquake that hit the area including the house a few years ago. I really enjoyed all the pictures on the wall, which showed more of her father Bogyoke Aung San and his family. The furniture they used is still there, even the bed Aung San Suu Kyi used to sleep in. The house also gives you an idea how 'rich' people lived in the early days. Interesting and worth a visit!
