a must visit place when in yangon, to see the rich cultural heritage of Myanmar. The Museum is very aesthetically done and is categorized into different areas for the ease of the visitor. There is a section in the museum which dislays the various tribes of Myanmar through life size mannequins dressed in local attire.

The house is preserved well. He does not accumulate wealth and led a simple life outside of politics. Hence, there are not many items in the house. Some notes, Not wheelchair/stroller friendly. Toilet is clean.

The museum is in the house once lived in by Bogyoke Aund San and his family. Sadly, one of his sons died in the swimming pool there. it does not take long to walk through the various rooms but you do get a good feel for the life of the man and what he achieved prior to his assassination.

It costs about USD $4.00. Really very little to see. Will take you less than 10 minutes to walk through the rooms. There is no analysis of the general's place in Burmese history. Honestly, you're better off seeing U Thant house.

Unless u are a big fan of history or keen to familiarize with the Aung San's family history, ten minutes will be sufficient to complete the tour of the double-storeyed house. Foreigners need pay an entrance fee, and staff wasn't helpful and friendly.

Moving photographs and historic documents in the garden takes you back to the assassination of General Aung San. Inside the house, it's stunning to see General' Aung San's bedroom and living areas. We went on Martyr's day, so the grief of visitorswas very real.

This was her fathers house until he was assasinated. It has been turned into a museum with lots of information i English about "Bogyoke"s life. Does not take too long to visit but we found it very interesting - more than the house where she was in housearrest since nobody gets inside there (as she still uses the house when... More
