Ancestral Goa museum, also known as Big Foot in Loutolim is around 10 km from Margao. This open-air museum-cum-parkland covers an area of about 9 acres and is the first of its kind in India. The museum showcases large life size statues and structures depicting culture and tradition of rural Goa around 200 years old.
The 14 m sant Mirabai sculpture, which is also the India’s longest laterite sculpture, is the main highlight of the museum. Believed to be blessed with good luck if the person stepping on it is pure at heart, the big foot at the museum is worth seeing.
The Ancestral Goa museum also features different miniature houses showcasing traditional occupation & social classes of fishermen, Goan artisans, farmers, a music school, liquors shops, village market and a feni distillery. Then, there is a spring called as Boca da Vaca, fruit & spice garden, Big Foot art gallery, handicraft centre, a bookstall and a lot more.
