Nice to learn some things about Goan architecture. I love the building it is in and the surroundings. Overall I found the information slightly chaotic, but nice pictures, Goan music, and objects to see ;)

The place is clad with memories of old heritage of goa. The architecture is fantastic and you can meet the hands that sculpted the building just a block away(appointment/luck necessary). The historic stories are interesting and can be listened sitting on a cantilevered bench through the earphones. Typical Goan music also available. This place is a hidden gem for seekers... More

This is a hidden gem... looks great... lots of interesting stuff on how different cultures affected the design of the houses in goa. Very refreshing. It's a bit far from touristy north goa but well worth the visit
