  • Very nice resort with very good services. Room are very comfortable. Suitable for families, conference, meetings and relax
  • We thoroughly enjoyed this place, and it shows the bygone days of Goa's past! It's a glimpse into the old culture, traditions and professions of Goa... And, the village setup, the sculptures fit perfectly with the Goan atmosphere... The main attraction of this museum, India's largest flat rock sculpture, that of Sant Mirabai was nice to watch... There are a few shops, where you can buy Goan themed souvenirs... One shop also sells a magic lamp, which is very interesting... Also, do have a glimpse of world's most dangerous animal :)
  • Very badly maintained property. Not much to see. Definitely not worth the ticket price. In the name of sound and light show, only a poor inaudible audio is played room to room. The place is badly lit and is not ventilated adequately either. Avoid altogether; go to the Big Foot Museum on the opposite side of the road instead.
  • Lovely place showcasing the historic goan culture and traditions. Takes you back in time.
  • Good basic info on goan culture but museum is too small for the travel time you invest in...

Where to stay in Goa

One of the more affordable regions for staying in India, Goa offers a good range of sleeping options, from budget to luxurious. Visitors looking for that feeling of home away from home can explore rental apartments, which offer more space than a hotel room and often come with fully equipped kitchens. Look for an apartment in Oxel or Siolim, peaceful villages with gated communities and a range of facilities. Beach houses and private villas offer an alternative for those with deeper pockets, while beach huts/shacks work well for budget-conscious travelers.
