  • Everyone should visit this museum that now houses most of the paintings from the 18th and 19th centuries that previously were kept in the National Museum. Highly recommended.  more »

  • The place is having a nice chiostro, which for me was the best thing that I saw here. The museum is well organised for those interested to know more about colonial art, old paintings and history.
  • It is a small and educational museum.
  • Wonderful museum featuring tons of artwork and artifacts from the 15th century onward.
  • Nice old colonial building with fountain at the middle. You Will know more about structure of the colonial society. National and d oro museum are far better in the creativity the exposition were built with. Sunday: free entrance.
  • Recently restored, this museum offers an amazing insight to the country's colonial period. It is very well curated and the art exhibition is on edge. Adding to all of this, the building is just beautiful.
