  • It has a good collection of artifacts. Best to visit with someone (Catholic parents in my case) who has some knowledge of the significance of the items for the Christian culture.  more »

  • The Museum of Christian Art was built in 1994 and is a major tourist attraction of Goa. The residents of Goa are very artistic people and they love their art. This love of theirs can be witnessed by visiting any of the museums in the state. The Museum of Christian Art is a very famous and unique Museum. The museum is one of a kind and no other museum in Asia is like the Museum of Christian Art. The museum contains artworks of only Christians. There are some outstanding sculptures, paintings, furniture, precious metals, etc. present in the museum. One should definitely visit the Museum of Christian Art if they are going to Goa as one gets to learn a lot about the culture about the people living there. Location- Velha Goa, Convent of Santa Monica, Goa 403402 How to reach there from Panaji- Museum of Christian Arts is 13 km away from Panaji and one can hire a scooter or cab to reach there. Entry time- 9:30 am.
  • A place where you can got information about the whole history of goa and indian culture...
  • The Museum of Christian Art is a very niche museum that showcases Indo-European art as it found its expression in Christian imagery and worship during the Portuguese rule in Goa. It is interesting to see how natives interpreted a European culture to meet their own sensibilities as it had also come to shape their religion and worldview. The Museum is very well located in the Convent of Santa Monica in the historic city of Old Goa and amidst the UNESCO World Heritage monuments. If you love art, this museum is a must see.
  • Nice place. Good for tourists.
  • Not much to see. Do not go with high hopes. Staff is average, and aren't exactly a good fit for tourism attraction. Photos allowed, but not with people in it (beats me). Can buy some souvenirs though.
