Yes it tells you a bit about Goan culture but it is cringlingly bad. Like a French theme park from the 1950's , only missing a dodgy pitch and putt. I started laughing immediately, my wife started off furious ,but, got into the irony half way around and the giggles started. Add it onto a days itinerary ie. Margoa new market or a spice plantation and you may enjoy, but do not just go there specially.
A whole section on Cashew Fenni, but you can't get to taste any or even buy some.

I went to Ancestral Goa. At Ancestral Goa there are a number of places to visit such as an art gallery where one can see work done by local children and artists of State and National fame. It is great place to go.

This place is also known as big foot and that is because of the imprint of a foot on a rock. People say that if you wish something with pure heart by touching the big foot your wishes will certainly come true.
The place is up kept. It takes around 45 minutes to visit the entire things.
It gives a glimpse of the ancestral goa like the houses, the clothes they wear, the market, rich and poor people and many more things. One should walk along with the audio guided tour. The audio tells all the things in details. At the end of the tour there is a lateral statue of Mira Bai which is very good.
The entry fee is 50/- Indian rupees.
At the end there are shops from where you can purchase souvenirs. We purchased a magic lamp.
I would suggest if you are in this area then do visit this place.

Reached the place with great expectations. The light and sound tour was absolutely poor. The sound was not at all clear and the lights were normal bulbs and we did not understand half of the thing. Second part of the tour was all about Goan culture and the sound and narration system was ver poor.
