Reviewed October 4, 2016

The house and grounds are relevant to the history of Myanmar and there are story boards in script and English explaining the life history of Bogyoke Aung San and his role in the history of Burma now Myanmar. The house, for it's time, would have been very modern in structure and furnishings. The house is well maintained and interesting but for those with limited time in Yangon, skip it go to the big ticket items. The grounds and gardens were lacking in attention and the toilets unusable due to filth (no Western toilets). We thought the entrance fee was reasonable but some tourists were arguing the price and refused to enter.

A charming villa, with a sad history, preserved with a few furnishings and objects. The setting is quite lovely and well worth a brief visit.

An interesting glimpse into the life of a great leader and the childhood of his daughter, Aung San Suu Kyi. At 5,000k the entrance fee was high, but the lovely home and peaceful surroundings helped us imagine the life of this amazing family.
