Our Story

The Museum of Goa (MOG) was conceived in 2015 by artist Dr. Subodh Kerkar. Dr. Kerkar transformed his existing studio into a contemporary art space with the expertise of renowned architect Dean D'Cruz. The lack of cultural spaces in Goa, particularly those dedicated to contemporary art, led Kerkar to envision an institution that would democratise art and make it accessible to a larger audience.

We believe that art is the universal language of mankind and has the power to connect people from all over the world. Apart from taking contemporary art to the larger public, the museum is also a pedagogical experiment in narrating history. The museum is not merely a repository of objects but a laboratory of ideas. In the local language Konkani, MOG means love, representing the museum's commitment to promoting art practice, culture and histories.

Our Vision

Making art accessible and integral to everyone’s life.

  • Fostering art appreciation through education and community engagement among diverse audiences.
