The old Church of Nossa Senhora da Boa Morte, erected in 1779, is the seat of the Museum of Religious Art of the same name, since 1961. The building has an octagonal format, with characteristic elements of Baroque architecture and is part of the Historic Center of the City of Goiás, recognized by Unesco as world cultural and historical heritage.

The Museum houses a collection with almost 1000 pieces, with emphasis on liturgical objects, such as altars, crowns and rosaries from the 18th and 19th centuries, in addition to various types of silverware, porcelain, furniture, apparel and altarpieces, many of them of Portuguese origin and others derived from the creativity of several Brazilian artists.

The biggest highlight is the collection of more than 100 works conceived by José Joaquim da Veiga Valle, an artist from Goiás born in Pirenópolis. The collection includes several religious works carved in cedar and the contribution of the sculptor was so important that his ashes are within an urn in the interior of the chapel of the Church.
