off the beaten track, interesting collection of antique farming equipment, kitchen utensils, brass ware, household nic-nacs; we were told only less than half had been displayed yet, would love to go back and see the complete collection of artefacts

“Interesting visit”
Reviewed February 9, 2012

Worth a visit to see how old Goa used to be. I'm glad I wasn't a farmer having to earn a living in those times.

“Interesting”
Reviewed December 17, 2011

Goa Chitra is a very interesting place to visit. I went at night and had a meal as there was a themed night with entertainment. It was quite expensive but definitely worth going once. A lot of thought has gone into putting this place together.

“Goa Chitra - a treasure chest”
Reviewed July 31, 2010

Tucked in the quaint beach side village of Benaulim, South Goa, Goa Chitra, is a place that you "MUST VISIT" while you are in Goa. The museum launched recently, houses one of the largest and richest collections of implements and lifestyle items that were used by Goa's working class from a time even before Goa. was discovered by the Portuguese sailor Vasco da Gama. In the organic farm attached to the museum, the museum's founders' Victor Hugo and Ally Gomes continue to grow a strains of Goan rice, vegetables and herbs that have long been lost to India's Green Revolution. This self funded, non-profit museum will definitely inspire you, as it did to me, that hard work and dedication are all you need to achieve your dreams in life.
If you an art collector, don't forget to visit the gallery that houses reasonably priced paintings of some of Goa's most reputed artists who have stepped forward to help Victor and Ally preserve Goa's past.
