Bogyoke Aung San Museum, Yangon (Rangoon)

3.8
#3 of 17 in Museums in Myanmar
Get a taste for the humble life of General Aung San, the founder of modern Myanmar, at Bogyoke Aung San Museum. The colonial-style villa displays black and white photographs, mementos, and books. Wind your way through the modest rooms stretched over two floors, decorated with simple furniture and a few personal belongings. Stroll to the garden pond, the site of the tragic death of one of general’s sons, then head to the garage to see the white vehicle the general used to drive. Although the captions come in English, they are quite brief.

    I felt nostalgic coming in here, like a place from another time. Simple yet powerful and informative. Not to be missed.  more »

    It is General Aung San is actually lived. Admission has changed and now is 5000 K. In the study, is a good hotel. Note it is because the place is a little hard to understand. You will go through close on the other hand, who are interested in the history and fun.

    This House Museum collects the life of general Aung San, a relevant character in the life of the country and father of Aung San Suu Kyi, which was Nobel Peace Prize. It is not a great Museum, but if you're interested the history of Myanmar is worth a visit.

    Nice, small museum. But entrance fee of 5000 kyats is steep. In the old photo on web, it used to be 500 kyats.

Where to stay in Yangon (Rangoon)

It can be difficult to find decent budget accommodations in Yangon, especially downtown, where rooms are usually small and booked months in advance. Look farther away from the city center for cozier budget options, often with complimentary breakfast included. The Kandawgyi lakeside features a number of high-end establishments.
