  • Very Interesting Museum.Gives u the best history about Konkan region. Guides are very efficient in their work and guide everything like a good story. Kids will enjoy it. There is small café and a souvenir shop too. Shell Exhibition also very interesting. The Problem is that the it has a lot of climbing,So Aged People may have a problem . Another thing is that they accept only in cash
  • Nice place to visit with family, specially kids. Many things we have seen in history and civics are recreated here. Guide walks you through the museum while telling story so it becomes more interesting. They also have shop/ exhibit of shells. Only drawback is they accept cash no cards.
  • This is a simple place. Takes around 20 minutes to show a overall picture of old konkan lifestyle. But this would be more interesting if there were more details
  • Amazing place and great guides which were provide free for sharing all detailed information about the place only 30rs entry but worth to watch..
  • Very enriching tour! The staff puts in very sincere effort in handling tourists.
