  • I wish we could have visited one or more of the old Goan mansions, but since we couldn't, this museum showed us what we were missing. The eccentric building itself is small, but delightful and packed ...  more »

  • Great place. Well documented and collection. Good cafe at an affordable price. Beautiful surrounding's. Well maintained and good staffs. A must see in Goa.
  • Very beautiful documentation of the houses in goa, evolution of architectural elements and how goan houses have the most welcoming entrances. The museum itself is a very humble design. A must visit place for architecture enthusiast and those who want to know more about the goan homes.
  • Oh, words fail me in describing this place. It was an enchanting, mesmerizing experience to say the least. We felt like Goa 101 from an architecture perspective. Though I am not from an architecture background, it transformed my outlook towards the Goan houses as I found myself keeping a lookout for pillars, arches, and other design elements. I found the staff courteous and knowledgeable. There is a small pantry of sorts that serves eats. Mr D'Cunha stays next door and if you're supremely lucky you could end up having a tet a tet with the man himself. Right next show is Mr Mario Miranda's workshop where they retail collectibles, which is a must visit. Enjoy.
  • Best one for everyone. But if you are an architect or an architecture student you will love it more
  • Best place for student of architecture and civil engineering. Nice art and best atmosphere . . .
