Highlights 250 original works of eminent European and Portuguese artistes of the 19th century; the Inquisition table

Established in 1871, the Institute Menezes Braganza is a repository of valuable paintings and antiques dating back to the Portuguese rule. Originally called the Institute Vasco da Gama, this century-old institution was later renamed after Menezes Braganza, an eminent Goan freedom fighter. Over the years, the Institute Menezes Braganza has come to be known as an integral part of Goa's cultural landscape and a hub for the local intelligentsia.

The Menezes Braganza museum boasts of a priceless collection of paintings, drawings and sculptures. Its enviable repertoire contains 250 original works in the form of oil paintings, prints, and sculptures of European and Portuguese masters of the 19th century, including father of modern art Cezanne, Henry Russo, Reonar, Groze, Pissaro and Mattis Broque, a contemporary of Picasso.

The Institute Menzes Braganza also houses over 50 collections of Indian masters like Laxman Pai, Prafull Dahanukar, M F Hussain, Souza, Raza, etc. The piece-de-resistance among the historical artifacts is the famous "Inquisition table," on which the council of the Inquisition's proceedings were conducted. The Central Library of the Institute, founded in 1832, is the oldest public library in India.
