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
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.
A perfect museum to learn about the Cham people. It's centrally located and had English explanation which was a huge plus. All of the exhibition is indoors so it's a perfect place to spend an hour learning about the Cham.
The 60,000d are totally worth it if you like museums and history. Its a simple museum with a lot of sculptures and vestiges from the Champa that used to live in what's now Vietnam and Cambodia. Mostly know for My Son. A little bit more information in English would e appreciated, specially about the sculptures and the meaning of them. Maybe going with a tour guide would be a great option. There's also a photo exhibition in the second floor.
Great sculptures. English translations for most of the sculptures. Well done.
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.
