  • Firstly, thank you for the opportunity to rate this place and share my experience. I had reviewed this place before in 2017 and also I had deleted my review. However, as this experience has hurt me very badly, I wish to write it all over again. I came all the way from London just to visit this museum in February 2017. I was looking forward to visit this museum, so I could do some research on the Indo-Portuguese culture and Catholicism in Goa. The problem is that, for some reason I only had a 2000 rupee note and I just could not get any change. For that, I was rudely refused entry. Furthermore, the conduct of the staff was not good either. If this was any other museum, the staff would have provided some other alternatives, rather than loosing a customer. As soon as I handed the note, the lady at the ticket desk looked at me angrily and asked her senior colleague (who happened to be an elderly man) what could be done. He looked at me angrily as well and in a rude way said that he cannot allow me in and walked away. None of them even bothered to at least say, "sorry." Luckily, I managed to get some change at a local shop and as I did not want my trip to get wasted, I came back and asked for a photograph permit. This time I was allowed a standard ticket, but refused a photograph permit. Owing to this bad experience, I did not enjoy the rest of my visit. I will come back again but, I expect better standards and some basic courtesy towards tourists. On a side note, some of the reviewers here are not actually reviewing the Christian Art Museum, they're confused with the museum of archaeology which is behind Se Cathedral. The museum of Christian art in behind Saint Monica's convent/besides St Augustine's ruined tower.
