The St.Thomas Church has been turned into the Diu Museum, which is a bit misleading since there are only wooden sculptures of Saints and Portuguese Nobles in their typical 17th-century-dresses to be seen. In a Museum dedicated to Diu one would have expected also items...More

They have stored all the antique statues, scripts, wooden carvings,and idols of God. This was previously a church named St. Thomas Church. Very old building but they have maintained it well.

We expected it to be like a real museum and with that expectation in mind when you enter at this place you get highly demotivated on seeing a old church with nothing much to see. We spent just 10 min and left. Total waste of...More

I didn't find anything special or attractive which qualifies it to be called as museum. Sculptures were also not much in quantity and those were just standing there. There was not much variety or management efforts to keep the visitors engaged in the museum. If...More

Let us hope in time to come the Diu administration really comes up with a genuine museum or rewrites this place as a church with old church relics display area. On reaching the place you are faced with a church and on climbing the stairs...More

It might have been a very good church in its day but now it seems like a desperate attempt to restore or continue this structure as a tourist attraction. Not much to see inside. There are some artefacts and idol which can be completed in...More

The way to this not-so-big museum is with nice steps alongside fountains. There are also nice gardens adjacent to these steps on both the sides. Inside the museum which was originally a church houses century old artefacts. Interesting. J Ganesh
