Goa Museums

Museum in Goa

The extra-ordinary heritage and culture of Goa is well preserved through its museums. The chequered history of the state marked by invasions and occupations finds an expression through the artifacts preserved in the Goan museums. The relics of the Goan past which these museums preserve make them worth a visit at least once. These museums are treasure houses of the rich history of Goa. Apart from a plethora of archeological objects, the museums serve as a home to both traditional as well as modern arts and crafts. Here are some of the important museums of Goa :

Archaeological Museum

The Archeological Museum is located in Old Goa, 9 kilometers off Panaji. Old Goa mainly houses administrative buildings, monasteries, fortress walls and churches. The museum is built in a convent of St. Francis of Assisi. The objects displayed in the museum reflect the history of Goa.
