  • Yes it tells you a bit about Goan culture but it is cringlingly bad. Like a French theme park from the 1950's , only missing a dodgy pitch and putt. I started laughing immediately, my wife started off...  more »

  • Nice and quiet place in South Goa. They have a good tour of the museum and of Goa's historical professions . One can spend upwards of 1 hour at this place. They have few eateries and a juice store at this place. There is a store of art and crafts which I believe is quite reasonable. That's all about Ancestral Goa - you must visit it one time
  • Different aspects of Goan life very nicely modelled with audio explanation. Good place to visit in Goa. Should not be missed.
  • Very informative visit. Learnt a lot about Goan culture and tradition.Gathered knowledge about old tools and implements used in routine life , way back then. Must visit for all. The place is up kept. It takes around 45 minutes to visit the entire things. It gives a glimpse of the ancestral goa like the houses, the clothes they wear, the market, rich and poor people and many more things. One should walk along with the audio guided tour. The audio tells all the things in details. At the end of the tour there is a lateral statue of Mira Bai which is very good. The entry fee is 50/- Indian rupees. At the end there are shops from where you can purchase souvenirs. We purchased a magic lamp. I would suggest if you are in this area then do visit this place.
  • Worth a visit in noon when you can't enjoy much on beaches.good insight in gian culture
  • Very nice place to visit. The road to reach their is lovely. The Old House has display of very rare and interesting things. Definitely a must place to go.
