State Archaeological Museum Goa
From Brahmanical sculptures to medieval coins, stamps and portraits; the Archaeological Museum of Goa is one of the ideal destinations for those enthusiastic about ancient history. Tourists get to explore the remnants of Portuguese rule and small items that provide a glimpse into Goa's rich cultural heritage. From great paintings of Vasco da Gama to Alphonso De Albuquerque the museum also has ancient artefacts of the other periods. The gateway is decorated by a towering statue of Alphonso De Albuquerque. The 3-6m high bronze statue of Alfonso de Albuquerque greets the guests at the entrance.
In the guests lobby, one can see exhibits depicting the voyages of early explorers and maps that illustrate the topography of Goa. These are rare maps that contain detailed information about museums in Goa, Daman and Diu. The pivotal gallery in the ground floor serves as an introduction to the nature of exhibits in the museum. The Key Gallery contains items excavated from medieval period. From exhibits of Vijaynagar Empire to Baptist paintings, Archaeological Museum of Goa is a treasure trove for history lovers. The Museum was rearranged and reorganised fully during the CHOGM Retreat in Goa during 1982. A lengthy hall lying to the retired side of the gateway to the Museum was converted into two galleries by laying a reinforced concrete floor with a newly built wide staircase at the extreme west to facilitate access to the first floor.
