Googled the museum, said it was closed permanently but showed a different location than tripadvisor. So we went anyway, only to find that there’s nothing on the location tripadvisor suggests. Also went past the actual museum, which says closed to visitors.

The only museum in Goa which showcases the history and geography of Goan culture. It shows how Portuguese conquered Goa and how did they developed it. It reflects on the Porgtugese colonies and Goa's progress through Arabian sea fairs!
