It is worth a 20-30 minutes visit. The main attractions are wood sculptures of the Christ carrying the cross, in pain - dated from the 17th-18th century. The old church where the museum is located dates from 1690. Unfortunately the museum store is poor.

This is a beautiful and extraordinary collection of Catholic sacred art. It's not massif or especially extensive but it's the best representation of this type of Brazilian art I believe you can see anywhere. The nativities are the largest and most elaborate anywhere.
