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

this is not a museum, it was a old church, and you would say collection of old things. but this is not well maintained place. so it is not worth to visit this place. if it is on your way then you can visit.

It was listed as a place to visit but describing it as a museum is wrong . It has some old bits and pieces of items gathered from various churches over the years and kept here for safe keeping. Some statues of different saints are...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

St Thomas Church was built by the Portuguese during their colonial rule of the territory in 1598. Despite being one of the main church of Portuguese rule, it was abandoned, it was renovated in 1998 and was converted into a museum. The museum apart from...More

This place is named as Diu Museum but it is really the former St Thomas Church - oddly, Tripadvisor maintains a separate listing for the Church, vene though it is the same place!. The collection is just the old Portuguese religious statues, mostly wooden, from...More
