Armed with a cast-iron perseverance to preserve all things Goan especially of the bygone era deserves much more accolades than he is given credit for. 'Goa Chitra' is one man's single effort to salvage what has remained of our rich past. It's not just a museum like the deeply dedicated curator himself Victor Hugo Gomes pointed out, but a classroom, a playroom, a zoo and a garden where ones imagination can stretch from the past to the future.

Needless to say, I HIGHLY recommend this museum!! Ask for a guided tour and I can guarantee you that you won't be disappointed.

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!

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

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.
