We visited purely because this is where you by the entrance tickets to the Cathedral. One ticket gives access to both Cathedral & Museum. The museum contains much related to the Cathedral, the town and the island. Its well worth the visit. An enjoyable way to get some shade, too.

This place looks fairly small and simple from the outside but is a labyrinth. The artwork and building inside are stunning and beautiful, it's 5 euros pp and worth it.

From the outside the museum does not look that tempting. It is worth venturing inside though. There you will find an amazing treasure trove of silverware and relics from the Catholic Church.

You get a combined ticket for the museum and cathedral. The museum has a great collection. Lots of amazing silver-work! Also a large gallery of slightly scary religious paintings. It was interesting, and then good to go into the cathedral which was beautiful. We probably wouldn't have gone into the museum except that it was included with the cathedral ticket... More

There are several rooms of silver and furniture on the ground floor. Some of some significance including the relics of St Paul. On the first floor there are rooms of religious and church related paintings and portraits. Overall this is a very interesting exhibition of Religious art .

Missed this on my first visit but managed on my second. The collection in the museum is truly remarkable and the cathedral itself (access included in price) is truly spectacular. Would absolutely recommend to all visiting.

I visited the museum because admission to the cathedral included admission to the museum. Allow about an hour. The building itself is also interesting.

This costs 10 euro to enter but is beautifull inside, NO flash photography is allowed and they enforce this vigorously.
