Located in Benaulim, Goa Chitra is a museum set up by Victor Hugo Gomes, an artist and restorer by profession, in a bid to preserve traditional items and memorabilia from the state. With more than 4,000 objects on display, Goa Chitra Museum delves into the culture of ancient Goa. The exhibits include traditional farming implements and other ancient tools of trade.

Each of the artefacts is supplemented by information collected in situ by interviewing the elders of the community and through the study of its application in daily life. Goa Chitra is an ethnographical museum, which means it is a reflection of civilisations whether or not technically advanced. When such a museum is planned, importance is given to the concept that the implements represent people's lifestyles, their indigenous methods, craftsmanship, art and folklore.
