While you can spend day after day exploring museums (which isn't really my cup of tea), in order to get out of the rain, I walked across the courtyard from my hotel to this museum. It's worth wandering around and spending an hour learning about Princess D. Joana and the convent. The old convent has been well-preserved and offers good history of the city and area. The English translations aren't great (look more like Google translate) but the general idea works. It's interesting to see the art (especially of D. Joana) move through the centuries as the artists learn about shadowing, depicting 3D images, etc.

We visited this museum on September 30th. You can buy a combination ticket for this museum, the Art Nova museum and the Ciadad museum. The information boards are in Portuguese and English. This museum is located in the monastery where Princess Joan lived and died as a nun. The highlight is her tomb, the chapel and the statues they display during the procession.

Beautiful chapel, fairly comprehensive convent, some great religious art, and an interesting narrative about the infanta Joana. Maybe the best religious museum I've done outside of the Vatican!

To visit this museum in Aveiro, it is good to park the car into the underground carpark of the “Forum” and from here you are at walking distance of the museum and the cathedral of Aveiro. The Museum de Aveiro has been installed since the year 1911 in the former “Convent de Jesus of the Dominican Female Order”. This convent, who is one of the oldest in Aveiro, dates back to the second half of the 15th century, and got founded by D. Brites Leitão and D. Mecia Pereira.

Princess Joana, daughter of Afonso V, enters this house in the year 1472 and lives a life of sanctity here, leading to her beatification in the year 1693. The prestige of the convent was thus definitively associated with the presence of Princess Santa Joana and her cult religious.

The Museum of Aveiro presents a visiting circuit with two distinct parts: the monumental route and the permanent exhibition.

On the ground floor of the convent, the tomb of Santa Joana Princes, the Church of Jesus, the cloister, the chapter room and the refectory stand out.

The meseum is part of an old convent and has many paintings and other religious artefacts, such as clothings, chalice, etc. A good place to visit when it rain.

The museum is really a religious/convent and a treasure trove. The chapel is awe inspiring with it's walls, pillars and ceiling of intricate wooden carving. The cloisters are serene and the upper rooms resplendent. I am not overly keen on religious art so skimmed through the art rooms but the 'museum' would be the highlight of any trip to Aveiro.

This museum has to be one of Portugal's unsung heroes. There is so much to do and see in Portugal but this museum is a must see.
My husband and I were blown away by the beauty of the little church and the wonderful ceilings. We spent about an hour and a half here wondering around taking photos just taking in the beauty all around us.
