If you are fascinated by the nature of Portuguese influence in this area, then this museum is well worth the short walk for a visit but all in all it is a little too quiet and reserved to provide much more than a brief experience. Artefacts are excellent so perhaps fairer to say 'not for us'!

At eleven in the morning the doors to this heavily visited little museum open and from then on their is a nearly continuous flow of Indians and foreign travelers through this gem of a museum. Most amazing are the old,beautifully painted wall murals. Nothing short of spectacular even if you cannot take photos inside!!

Nice collection of religious artifacts. They are displayed nicely and labeled appropriately. It only costs 25 rupees to enter. The only bad thing was the remains of the original fort in the basement were not able to be looked at closely because the basement was filled with water. We could only see them from the staircase. I can only think... More

As this is close to many other sites I think it is definitely worth a stop. There were interesting artifacts from local Catholic Churches. There was also a mostly-underground piece of the original Portuguese fort which was the first we had seen of it!

its the bishop house over the remains of the old fort not so interesting ... unless you have some religious interest in catholics I guess ... I thought it was a museum , indo-portugese, but found out it wasn't. The visit didn't go in vain as we got to see the remains of the fort in the basement

Entrance was 25 rupees. I was the only one there and Joseph gave me a tour and explained some of the exhibits. The museum was small. Spent about 40 minutes there. Joseph was extremely friendly and knowledge - his tour made the museum much more worth it.

Not worth a visit in the museum. Dowdy and poorly displayed. It is overpriced compared to other places. The grounds are nice though.

It is very small neat museum shared grounds with Bishop House. The collection is dedicated mainly to local religious art and architecture, and portuguese influence on it. The exposition is carefully selected with clear signage.
