Museum Of Cham Sculpture - Review
The Cham people are a Vietnamese ethnic group. This museum, opened in 1989 in a French colonial building, is the greatest collection of Cham artefacts in the world. It consists of almost 300 incredible works of terracotta and stone sculpture from the Kingdom of Champa. Organised by location of discovery, most of the artefacts are from the 7th to the 15th centuries. They comprise of icons, pedestals, pediments, and fragments of Hindu and Buddhist influence. If you want context though, you'll have to read up about the Cham beforehand, as the museum is lacking in information.

Museum Of Cham Sculpture, Da Nang Reviews
If you don't have more time and really wanna know something about where you are. This is a good place to learn and know more about the history of Vietnam and champa Kingdom as well as the artifacts of Cham people from thousands year ago. There are many relics collected from a lot of provinces along the central of Vietnam. Especially, the great artifacts in the early 9th century from My Son sanctuary which was recognized as a world cultural heritage site in 1999. Make sure that you have a local guides to share with you about the interesting stories and historical facts when you are here.
Great place for the family. Bring a nice camera and be prepared to stay for about 2 hours. Excellent thing to do while it's raining in the afternoon or for a short morning trip. Best done in the late or early morning when there are fewer tourist buses. Also make sure your camera or phone has a good charge because you will take at least 100 photos each.
Lovely museum - entry fee is 60K no matter if you’re a student, child, or whatever else works. The museum features a wide variety of sculptures from the Cham tribes, with a lot of Buddhist influences. Also shows traditional crafts and insights into the Cham way of life. The museum is quite large and has many galleries, some also showing beautiful photographies of Vietnam. Worth a visit for sure! Just be aware that there isn’t any aircon - fans for sure, but it can get quite hot.
Impressive museum! The art of Champa originates from the Hindu. Wonderful Champa architecture! Wonderful Apsara art! Tears for a nice nation was perish!
I found the exhibits here really fascinating. The sculptures are incredibly beautiful and full of life, even amusing at times (to modern eyes). It was an excellent complement to our trip to My Son. I did a little research before we came about the history of Vietnam, the Cham, and the "Indianization" of Indochina and I think all that served to orient us better. There were books available at the giftshop, but they were labelled with prices twice as high as those at the My Son gift shop, so we passed. There was a photography exhibit on the second floor of the museum with beautiful pictures of life from all over Vietnam, and well worth seeing.
