Religious Art Museum

Address: Street 3 , Ave. A, in St. Philip’s Town, formerly St. Dominic’s Church and Convent.

It is located in the former St. Dominic of Guzman’s Chapel that was built in the second quarter of the 18 th century and restored in 1974, though it still preserves its original structure. The building is thus an object of utmost architectural significance that is worth visiting.

The Museum treasures the most complete collection of colonial religious art in the country. The pieces exhibited are from families and churches in the City of Panama as well as other cities, some of which enable the visitor to appreciate the influence of South American art on the Isthmus.

By means of temporary exhibitions, the Museum has shown pieces of great value such as the Virgin of Perpetual Aid, an 18 th century oil painting on canvas; Pelican, an 18 th century wood carving; Jesus Resuscitated, an 18 th century wood carving.

There are pieces of Spanish origin such as the excellent 16 th century silver embossed and engraved processional cross which belonged to the church of the city of Santiago de Veraguas.
