We visited this museum on September 30th. You can buy a combination ticket for this museum, the Art Nova museum and the Ciadad museum. The information boards are in Portuguese and English. This museum is located in the monastery where Princess Joan lived and died as a nun. The highlight is her tomb, the chapel and the statues they display during the procession.

This museum has to be one of Portugal's unsung heroes. There is so much to do and see in Portugal but this museum is a must see.
My husband and I were blown away by the beauty of the little church and the wonderful ceilings. We spent about an hour and a half here wondering around taking photos just taking in the beauty all around us.

This museum incorporates much of the medieval former Convent of Jesus (where the 15th century Princess Joana of Portugal lived and died as a nun). Attractively laid out; a self-guided audio tour is available in English, Portuguese or Spanish. Small gift shop; there is also a cafeteria which was closed on the day of my visit. Admission for adults is 4 Euros. Overall, this interesting museum is a credit to the City of Averio.

The meseum is part of an old convent and has many paintings and other religious artefacts, such as clothings, chalice, etc. A good place to visit when it rain.

I really enjoyed this. The convent is really interesting. You can see where the nuns lived. And the church is truly beautiful. And on two levels. Upstairs is where the nuns worshipped.
The whole place is golden and opulent. Well worth the visit on its own.
Then there is the museum - full of beautiful and interesting items.You get a real feel for the history.
There is an awful lot to see. Make sure you don't miss anything.
The whole experience is high quality and would be worth visiting in any city in the world. It was fun to find it in Aveiro.

I was not prepared for the awsome beauty of the convent itself, one of the few late "pure" gothic monuments in Portugal. Beautiful! Even the added early baroc altar in the church is marvellous, one needs time to appreciate how impressive. After, the visit includes a very large collection of good religious sculpture in the monastery rooms, very well displayed.

We spent a most enjoyable and educational two hours wandering around this extensive museum. Although not religious people we were most impressed at the beauty and splendour of much of this museum, and the amazing level of artistic craftsmanship.
One tip here is to buy the multi site ticket. It’s only one euro more and you get entry to a further three museums. I would have to add that none of these come anywhere near the museum of aviero, but they are worth a look.

This museum is based around Santa Johanna and her life.
When you buy your ticket ask for an audio guide as there is no indication they are on offer. Although the signage around the museum is very good the audio guide augments them
The chapel is very impressive although our visit was restricted by a tour group sitting in the pews and who had a very expansive guide who spoke for almost 45 minutes.
The cloister area is interesting and you can imagine what life was like back when it was in full use.
The art museum upstairs is huge and you need to put aside a good 1 - 2 hours if you want to see everything on offer.
Overall a very rewarding visit.

After visiting the Cathedral next door, we popped into visit this museum. EURO 4,00 per person, with na audio ear piece that explained each area of the museum, telling you the story of the Patriarch Saint of Aveiro (Santa Joana)… which is truly amazing.

The areas are well kept, and divided into two parts:

1)- The OLD section, with the convent and a very interesting story about the princess who dedicated her life to the church, giving up all the comforts of being a princess… to become a nun.

2)- The newer section, with all the art, paintings and relics from the era.

Being in Aveiro (that is not known for its history)… this was actually a very pleasant surprise, and a nice way of spending about an hour and a half, imagining the history, as you go through each area.

Come here… take in the atmosphere, and learn a little about this “unknown” Saint. I am pretty sure you will enjoy it, as I did.

This museum was wonderful! It had great permanent collections and temp. exhibits, great staff and a really good audio guide (which I don't usually like)
If you go to only one museum in Aveiro, make it this one.
