The people running this seemed keen to persude us to take off our shoes before we entered. I know its a cultural thing, but its only a museum! Strange collection of carved wooden saints in an interesting building.

Diu Museum is very close to the St. Paul's Church and advertised as one of the most prominent tourist locations of Diu. Reaching there revealed that the St. Thomas Church was converted into a museum in 1992 and wooden artifacts inside are over 400 years old. So far, so good.

A relic which has not been maintained in time. Though located on a hill & along a very characteristic pavered Street running all along the church , it fails to draw the crowd as it is musty & dark. It can certainly do with some renovation.

Please do not visit the museum if you are short of time . It is very poorly maintained . The only good point is the beautiful landscape . The museum per se can be easily skipped .

It is very close to Saint Paul's Church and you may or may not go. If you have a time crunch then you can skip this place. There's lots of old Portuguese architecture which may be of some interest for art and architecture seekers.

This is an old church which has been now converted into a museum. It has a small collection of antiques, nothing too interesting. But if you have time do visit.
