A most interesting museum and an excellent collection of religious art. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality within this museum / art gallery. Very good souvenir shop reasonably priced. Friendly staff.

For $25 you can visit the museum, art gallery and do a two hour guided tour that takes you places you can't take yourself. Exceptional value. Worth a few hours of your time
