Bogyoke Aung San Museum, Yangon (Rangoon)

3.9
#3 of 27 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.

  • With 4 floors to visit, even by walking quickly, the visit takes time! Interesting objects on the entire culture of Myanmar. We can't shoot and they don't sell postcards... too bad!

  • Memorial place for Burmese people in case remembrance of Myanmar Independence leader, General Aung San.
  • Interesting place. Not too much there but very evocative.
  • It is a good place to learn about our great leader.
  • The museum celebrates the life and times of General Aung San. It is quite small and can be visited in under an hour. It is housed in a charming colonial building, the last home the famed political leader lived in before his assassination. A young Aung San Suu Kyi, the general's daughter and herself a prominent political personality, figures in a lot of the photos on display. For its size, the museum charges a steep fee of 5,000 kyats (about 4 USD), the same amount charged at the huge National Museum not far away.
  • It makes me so much appreciated to General Aung San.
