About Museum Of Cham Sculpture, Da Nang
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
Nice venue, but a quick visit if you’re not into staring at stone. As a museum mostly visited by Western people (my uber driver said he only ever took foreigners here, my friend said he once went as a kid) some context) it lacks some context. Yes we have smart phones, but a good museum evokes interest rather than kills it.
Lots of historical things to see. If you have nothing to do in Danang. Recommended to come here. Ticket is cheap, and the place is not crowded.
It is great. I can see and study Vietnam's history. And there is many things to study.
From Inanimate Stones to Living Art A group of seven of us entered the Cham Museum in the evening on 17th January 2018 after purchasing tickets at the entrance. The guide informed us that the museum had been founded in 1915 and opened to the public in 1919 and extended a few times as collections grew. The artefacts displayed date back from 5th to 15th centuries and reflect the culture of Champa people who flourished in Central and South Vietnam. The golden age of arts as partially depicted in the museum is the result of economic prosperity of the times. We viewed the beautifully sculptured artefacts for over an hour until the closure of the museum at about 1815. I believe they kept it open to enable us to complete our tour within. Most, if not all, sculptures reflect the religion of the Champa people, the early Hindu civilization together with their belief in Buddhism. There are over 300 pieces of sculpture on display mostly from sandstone, terra-cotta and some bronze. The range of artefacts include architectural decorations, statues of deities or gods, holy animals, many pedestals, dancing ladies with smiles at the corners of their mouth. The time we spend at the museum was travel back in time. I consider myself to be fortunate to have been able to appreciate and enjoy these pieces on display. The photographs that I captured do not really do justice to actually seeing and marvelling at these masterpieces!
A very informative museum with some amazing artifacts. It’s a relatively small museum and one can do the tour in an hour or so
