Museums are the storehouses of our ancient memories that we can pass on from generation to generation so that not only would the culture survive, but also grow with each generation. Diu has a vast and varied history and some of the relics from those era, which now has just been reduced to textbook chapters. Most notable museums in Diu are:

  • Diu Museums

    Diu museum used to be a church called St Thomas church which was later converted into museum to store and archive ancient sculpture and scriptures. This museum houses a lot of important antique statues, inscriptions on the stone by the ancient rulers, magnificent wooden carvings, idols, shadow-clocks and various other vital artifacts which gives us a peek into the history of Diu when it was colonised by the Portuguese. The entry in the museum is free.

  • Sea Shell Museum

    Sea Shell Museum is one of the first such kind of a museum housing the maximum number of shells of a diverse variety. These shells are exhibited in magnifying glasses of various sizes which are just put simply, beautiful to look at. The place is quite near to the Nagoa beach. The total collection of the sea shells is around 2500 to 3000.

    Price: The entry charges for this museum is INR 10.

Find out more about the rule of portuguese and their relics when you visit Diu museum and surely you would be left speechless on seeing the variety of seashells in the sea shell museum. You can only imagine what all is in the store of mother nature.
