Located on the St. John the Baptist church road, Mondo-Waddo, Benaulim, this is amongst a handful of museums of Goa displaying artifacts related traditional farming equipment. These are ancient tools that were used by agriculturalists and farmers centuries ago. Some of these tools were used in the cultivation of organic farms. What began as a modest collection of 200 such items when the museum first began has grown to over 4000 and is still growing.
The entrance fee to the museum is Rs 100 and photography is allowed inside the museum. Apart from traditional farming equipment, the museum showcases coconut farming tools, milk churning tools, traditional hand-woven baskets and several other implements that are not in use today. The Goa Chitra Museum partners with scholars and educational institutions to do more research on the farming and traditional cultivation techniques of ancient Goans. This is one of the many novel initiatives undertaken by the museum to provide solutions for the modern times.
