Ahoy mateys, let me tell you about the House of Goa Museum!
It’s more of an art gallery – confusing, I know. But don’t let that stop you from exploring this ship-shaped wonderland of Goan architecture.
Once you step inside, you’ll be blown away by the collection of furniture, home decor items, and ceramic tiles from the Colonial era. And let’s not forget the three-tier center piece structure that stands proudly in the middle of the road – it’s definitely an unusual sight, but a great spot for some fun pictures.
Sure, the entry fee is a bit steep at Rs.200 per person, but you can redeem Rs.50 on souvenirs, books, or snacks. And speaking of snacks, don’t forget to take a break and enjoy a cup of tea or coffee on the balcony that reminds me of Juliet’s balcony – so romantic!
Now, I have to admit, the art work is by a single artist, so there’s a lack of variety in vision, but hey, it’s still worth checking out. And if you have kids with you, they’ll definitely enjoy it on a Saturday afternoon.
The House of Goa Museum may not be for everyone, especially if you’re not a history lover, but it’s worth a 30-40 minute tour time. Plus, you can stock up on souvenirs and old photographs of Goa’s history at the one-stop shop.
So, if you’re in the mood for a unique and quirky experience, make sure to add the House of Goa Museum to your itinerary. But if you’re short on time, you can always opt for the ‘actual’ museums and art galleries in Goa that are almost free – just saying!
