Artefacts from early period to colonial period are on display. Located in old Goa. If one visits Goa, then the museum should not be missed.

If you are at old Goa this is one of the spots in the cluster. So you can visit as a package. The exhibition hall has displays of historical information. May small children find it boring. Old model of Portuguese ship is the best display.

It is not free. They charge Rs:20 per adult. It is not a big museum and photography is prohibited inside. It is near the Sec Cathedral church. If you are not interested in history you would take less than 15 minutes to complete the tour....More

A museum is a place that provides you a vista of past and the glorious history of a bygone era. This museum is a great encyclopedia for someone who is interested in learning the great traditions and culture of Goa. Highly recommended.
