Goa Chitra, an ethnographical museum is a tribute by its founder to his ancestors and their way of life based on age old wisdom passed down through generations. Set in a typical Goan village the innate beauty of the site is kept intact. Its natural grazing grounds and low lying areas are full with varieties of tree ferns, mosses, flowering plants, flamboyantly colored butterflies and birds.

The museum display comprises more than 4000 objects representing the universality of the culture of ancient Goa. Against the backdrop of a traditional organic farm, water harvesting and irrigation systems the structure blends modern technologies with antique elements such as wood, stone, doors, pillars and railings salvaged by the curator from more than 300 heritage homes that were being demolished. Age old traditions through museum display and outreach programs allow younger generations a share of the wisdom of the past. Implements that represent a lifestyle of a people, their indigenous methods, craftsmanship, art and folklore.

Victor Hugo Gomes its founder conducts a tour of the Museum and organic farm before hosting a folkloric performance.

Following this visit, reboard the bus for a short drive to the Taj Exotica Beach Resort - an opportunity to use the resort's beach, pool and other facilities. Soft drinks and light snacks are served at the resort.

Later, drive back to the ship via Goa's scenic coastline.
