TEMPORARY CLOSURE OF THE MUSEUM OF CHRISTIAN ART, OLD GOA, TO THE PUBLIC, FOR WORK ON ITS UPGRADATION


The Museum, which has enriched the cultural heritage and history of Goa, was set up 23 years ago with technical and financial assistance from the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, Portugal and The Indian National Trust for Art and Cultural Heritage (INTACH), New Delhi, and inaugurated by the then President of India, Shri Shankar Dayal Sharma, is due to undergo a major transformation.

The Museum has received World wide recognition for its important and unique collection of Indo-Portuguese art objects, acclaimed to be perfect symbiosis of two great cultural manifestations –Indian and Portuguese. As proof of this recognition, its art objects have been sought for many International exhibitions. Currently, one of its prized objects is on display at the CSMVS (Prince of Wales Museum) Mumbai.

In order to keep pace with present day museology and museography concepts and standards, as well as to preserve the unique Indo-Portuguese collection for posterity, the Museum has embarked on a much needed refurbishment project. The project will totally transform and upgrade the Museum to the latest world standards, as well as greatly enhance visitor experience.

The Museum will remain closed to the public, from 1st November 2017 to 31st January 2019.

The project is being funded largely by a Grant from the Ministry of Culture, New Delhi and by donations from well wishers of the Museum.

The project is being executed by an expert team of Architects, Engineers and Museologists of the Museum, The Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, Portugal and The Indian National Trust for Art and Cultural Heritage (INTACH), New Delhi.
