I'm fond of history. But even for me it was disappointing. House is an historical nice building. Exhibition , is dedicated to the Portuguese period, mainly church item, is not interesting and old fashioned. Prefer another museums.

It is located inside Bishop's house. It's a small museum with all the artifacts related to Portuguese era. Photography is not allowed. Ground floor has remains of Portugese fort. Nothing great about the museum and is not maintained well.

It costs 25 rupees as a foreigner to go in and there are lots of religious artefacts to see. You can't take photos inside. Joseph gives a great tour and really explains things well.
