Description

Goa Chitra Ethnographic Museum is based in the former Portuguese colony located in the census town Benaulim, in Goa. It has a large collection -- over 4000 artifacts -- focusing on Goa's traditional agrarian technology and lifestyle. The museum enhances the already beautiful location of Benaulim, rendering it a fantastic location to visit while traveling in Goa. The Goa Chitra as it is termed locally is the brainchild of Victor Hugo Gomes, a restoration artist by profession. It is the endeavor of the museum to showcase the lives of the ancestors who were a part of this land called Goa. Through this museum, Victor Hugo Gomes wanted to portray and pay tribute to the people who in earlier days lived simple agrarian lives with eco-friendly means and methods - the tools, implements, and crafts which were not technologically sophisticated but rendered a fine balance between nature and the peoples’ sustenance.

The Goa Chitra Ethnographic Museum at Benaulim caters, in the most enjoyable manner, to the public at large, by creating awareness of Goa’s indigenous art forms, origins and their development with the passage of time. It is a wonderful platform for learning about the land and its people. The ethnographic museum is set against the pretty backdrop of an organic farm, which started with a mere 200 articles, the number of which soon grew to 4000 objects,  The museum blends modern technology with traditional materials and elements found within 5 km radius of the property. It strongly adheres to the philosophy of reutilizing and retaining resources without wasting them.
