  • गणपतीपुळ्यापासून अवघ्या एक किमीवर प्राचीन कोकण हे संग्रहालय वसवलेले आहे. ओपन एअर आहे आणि इथे गेल्या काही शतकांतील कोकणी जीवनशैलीची माहिती इथे देण्यात आलेली आहे. लाईफसाईझ मूर्तीमधून हा सर्व इतिहास आपल्या नजरेसमोर उभा राहतो. खास वैशिष्ट्य म्हणजे आसपासच्या गावातील मुलीना प्रशिक्षण देऊन इथे गाईड म्हणून रोजगार दिलेला आहे. इथे मार्लेश्वर मंदिराची प्रतिकृती बनवलेली आहे. Prachin Konkan is life size museum set in a big campus depicting life of konkan 500 years back. Guided tour in the the museum takes you through various aspects of life in konkan like social, economic, cultural and religious background.
