Helped us understand more of, and get a real feel for, the recent history of Myanmar that led to the rule by the Military Junta and the recent 'thawing' and opening up of the country.

It is great to be able to visit a museum that has many of the furniture and effects as it was when General Aung San was alive and especially interesting to see the room Aung San Su Ky and her brothers lived.

If you are in yangon and you are interested in burma history and about the person who make myanmar independent, you should visit this place. It's the house where general Aung San has stayed and where the famous noble prize holder Aung San Su kyi has born.

We found this historical site a little disapponiting, nice to see original photos and stories on the walls We took a taxi there as the opening times are limited so check before going

Tucked away. No one else there when we went. $5 entry. Needs a good clean but interesting. Notices in English. Lots of information. Pleased we visited.

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.

Although there isn't much to see inside, it is a gorgeous building and I was able to learn more about Bogyoke Aung San from the visit. I would recommend asking your taxi driver to wait for you, as the location is a bit far from town.

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
