this is not a museum, it was a old church, and you would say collection of old things. but this is not well maintained place. so it is not worth to visit this place. if it is on your way then you can visit.

It was listed as a place to visit but describing it as a museum is wrong . It has some old bits and pieces of items gathered from various churches over the years and kept here for safe keeping. Some statues of different saints are kept. I don't know why but so ehow didn't feel that we were in a attraction and should spend some time.

It might have been a very good church in its day but now it seems like a desperate attempt to restore or continue this structure as a tourist attraction. Not much to see inside. There are some artefacts and idol which can be completed in 5 mins. They dont allow cameras inside. What might be more interesting is a garden opposite to the Diu museum especially if you have kids which is well maintained.

The way to this not-so-big museum is with nice steps alongside fountains. There are also nice gardens adjacent to these steps on both the sides.
Inside the museum which was originally a church houses century old artefacts.
Interesting.

St Thomas Church was built by the Portuguese during their colonial rule of the territory in 1598.

Despite being one of the main church of Portuguese rule, it was abandoned, it was renovated in 1998 and was converted into a museum.

The museum apart from a collection of local artifacts has numerous stone inscriptions of ancient rulers, antique idols, statues and sculptures (such as of Christ and Virgin Mary collected from churches in the vicinity; 400 year old wooden and marble statues of St. Thomas and St. Benedict), wood carvings said to be made out of wood more than 400 years old.
