We had already learned a lot about Bogyoke Aung San and didn't feel the need to go into the museum which has a high (for Myanmar) entrance fee. Our guide felt our decision was a wise one.

Not worth the 5000 to get in to be honest. It is just the house unless you are very interesting in that. However, there are not that many panels with descriptions

The fascinating and story of the man whose vision led to the founding of independent Burma - but which he sadly never lived to see - in the beautiful house where he lived with his family.

Was having high hopes to read about the revolution-how it started, what hardship they went through, what secret services they did behind the government, and eventually on the assassination. None mentioned. Instead it was just the house where he used to live with the family, a pond which his second son drowned into, and the little farming he did in... More

The thick-walled, high-ceilinged rooms are befitting of ones idea of an old-fashioned museum but there the qualities end. The exhibits are generally dull and usually poorly presented. the exception is the magnificent throne inexplicably removed formats palatial home.

If you're after jade or lacquer ware this is the place to go, there is heaps of both, though neither is cheap. People are friendly and not too pushy, although they are happy if you buy something.

It has been a strange and emotional moment to visit this house. So many things happen there who help Myanmar become what it is now. This is the house where Aung San Suu Kyi lived when she was young.
