The Perfect Location

Goa Chitra is based in the coastal Goan village of Benaulim. It was founded and is run (2010) by the artist-curator-restorer Victor-Hugo Gomes. TimeOut Mumbai has described the museum as “[o]ne of Goa’s most charming attractions” and add that “this little rural complex houses thousands of traditional implements, vessels and tools that evolved over centuries in the agrarian heartland of Goa in the service of farming and other traditional trades”.

About our Host

Ancient wisdom and knowledge is reflected in the traditional tools and implements that were used in the past. Our Instructor has dedicated his life collecting and preserving such tools and implements building three museums in Goa.
