  • 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.

  • The experience of visiting the place with in house guide was wonderful. I loved the place. small ticket price of 40 bucks. It was lovely to go through the rich history of konkani people. Would recommend.
  • Must visit place at ganapatipule, Lots of effort taken by authority to present reality. You can spent 2 to 3 hours happily at there. Only issue is parking.
  • Interesting if you visit it but not a must do...better to go in a group. The tour guides are very helpful though.
