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.

  • Its ok. Didnt really grab us. Saving part for me was the photo gallery. Some great shots there to enjoy.

  • This small museum is a gem. 500 excellent specimens of Champa Hindu Culture are housed in one well-preserved and lighted museum which is a marvel by itself having survived the terrible war years in the 60's and the dominant Buddhist culture of the Vietnamese. To think that it predates the Khmers in Cambodia requires a new mindset - for the Champas highly sophisticated lifestyle and religiosity must have influenced the Khmers - their traditional enemies - more than I thought. I thank the Vietnamese government for preserving their links to their golden past although it was Hindu-based and completely alien to their modern lifestyles. I was completely entranced by a visit to the site of the Champa Temples near Mý Son where these relics came from...another well-preseved site worth visiting. My humble pics of what moved me in this museum is my contribution to the epic culture of the lost empire of the Champas whose facial features are depicted in the murals of Angkor Wat and Angkor Thom as the "barbaric enemies" of the Khmers when they possibly inspired Khmer art and architecture - and civilisation - in the first place.

  • Some great Cham stone carving and sculpture. Defiantly influenced by the Khymer of Siem Reip and Anckor Wat

  • Rent the mp3 player to learn more about the marvelous sculptures. If you're not into stories about ancient times and the cultural artifacts they left behind, maybe this isn't for you. Go here with the purpose of knowing more about ancient civilizations so you can enjoy yourself.

  • The museum is undergoing renovation. Some sections are closed including the garden. Entry fee 40,000 VND. The a/c is off so its rather hot inside. Limited fans. Lots of sandstone relics here belonging to Champa civilisation. Most are related to religion esp Hinduism. Very limited explanatory notes. There are interesting graphical illustrations regarding the inner function of structures built.
