  • Out of respect I have given this museum 5 stars. In my opinion it is very underestimated. There are about 3900 figurines depicting the Old and new testament. The nun dedicated almost most of her life to build these educational scenario's kept together in a big display cabinet. And that's a bit a problem. The cabinet exist's of three levels and is quiet dark too see the brillant details of the figurines. The parts should have been displayed seperately ,highlighted with a subtiel led lighting. It would do it much more justice. A real work of art.
  • Today for the first time that I visited the Museum of the Arcane, I was very pleased to know that it is a historic site and regional treasure. It was good to know, something I was completely unaware of. I thank Cresacor and the Associação da Juventude da Candelária for this historic opportunity and the Grupo dos Idosos da Candelária and Sete Cidades for your company. And to the Arcane Museum for having received us, a good thing.
