“No Clue”
Reviewed 25 October 2013

There are few wooden sculptures and idols kept in the museum probably from the Portugal time. There is no history no description written. you will be left clue less since you would not know what is the history attached to those things. Its a waste of time until unless you are a history enthusiast and know something about those things already.

“not too impressed”
Reviewed 19 January 2013

Nothing much to offer. needs refurbishment and cleaning. Addition of some real historic commodities may make it a Museum.

“Old church converted to a so called museum with few old statues”
Reviewed 1 January 2013

If u like old architecture, this place is worth spending few mins. It's a short walk from the St. Paul's church and looks great from outside with the freshly painted white & flight of stairs in the front. There are a dozen or more broken statues with no caption or descriptions and they claim its over 400 years old. Very few visitors and no maintenance, the place looks in bad shape. Hopefully the local administration will do something soon to revive the place and restore its much deserved glory.

The local museum is worth a visit if you are bored with the sea and sand on Diu.
