    MUSEUMS: Science museum

    by Rupanworld Written May 27, 2009

    The Science museum is located opposite the Miramar beach. It opens at 10 AM and when we visited it was not yet 10 and I really don't know what they have inside. However, there are lots of stone sculptures of dinosaurs and pre-historic animals in the open park inside the main gate, which themselves are interesting for children atleast.

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Ancestral Goa is a miniature Goan village set up to give people an idea about the rural life of Goa during the old days of Portuguese era. It is built up in the house of Alvares mansion in a small village called Loutolim. The different artefacts, household items, furnitures used by thethen people are displayed inside the mansion. One can have an idea about a typical Portuguese influenced Goan household here.
