“Must see this Goa!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2012

Please do not leave Goa without paying homage to this wonderful place! Victor and Allie have dedicated their life to the preservation of traditional Goan culture and do so with panache. The museum is full of interesting collections and the hip couple regularly host movie and music nights in their outdoor bar and dining room. This is not your run-of-the-mill stop on a tourist junket, but rather a great opportunity to meet some fantastic Goans who are doing great things for their state!

“A look back”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2012

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”

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”
4 of 5 bubbles 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.
