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.

  • Perhaps I was wrong in that I expected more, but was disappointed. However, having read about this well known army general, and his untimely death, I was fascinated to visit the museum, but it did not...  more »
  • More said that Suu Kyi is Dad's Museum. I think General Aung San is an integral part of the country, know the origin of the country but to study. I think it's interesting even more visitors seem to come is various countries around the world.

  • General Aung San is the not only our National hero who fought for the independent but Aung San Su Kyi 's father who is still leading to become a successful Democratic country in Myanmar as well. You can see the photos; the written notes by him and the rooms that they lived in the museum which used to be his home before he died.
  • The place has both historical and present significance. Historical - because it had been the place where the family of General Aung San (Father of Myanmar) and his daughter the present State Counsellor of Myanmar and noble peace laureate Aung San Suu Kyi had lived. The house is very beautiful and attractive. It is constructed at small hillock. Inside the house, the statue of Aung San which really looks like a living one has been kept, you may like to talk with him. It is so amazing to see with your own eyes the place where great people has lived their live, shared their thoughts, dine together so on and so forth. It is a good place for researcher too. The overcoat presented to General Aung San by great Indian leader Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru has been kept there, and numbers of biography of General Aung San, Su Kyi and other valuable books are available there.
  • Interesting home, some personal artifacts including his car. If one is interested in exploring the recent history of Myanmar this is a must see. It is off the main road so find a guide if you don't speak or read Burmese.
  • Memorial place for Burmese people in case remembrance of Myanmar Independence leader, General Aung San.
  • Good. General Aung San Museum, 25, Bo Gyoke Museum Ln, Yangon, Mi-an-ma (Miến Điện)
