The Indo-Portuguese Museum, in the compound of Bishop House at Fort Kochi, is a heritage museum where one can be acquainted with the Portuguese connections in Kochi’s past.
The collections at this museum have been contributed by famous churches including the Church of Our Lady of Hope in Vypeen and Santa Cruz Cathedral in Fort Kochi. The museum has five main sections, namely, Altar, Procession, Treasure, Civil Life, and Cathedral. These sections got their names from the nature of items displayed in their collections, which include a piece of altar made during the sixteenth century from teak wood, obtained from the Church of Our Lady of Hope in Vypeen; a processional cross of the seventeenth century made of silver and wood from the Santa Cruz Cathedral in Fort Kochi; a chasuble from Bishop's House; and a Coat of Arms of the Franciscans.
