The Sa Huynh Culture Museum is housed in a beautiful colonial building. Unfortunately only very limited items are on display. It was less than what I was expecting from a museum.

The Sa Huynh Culture Museum in Hoi An is something Indians would empathize with as they have a civilization which is millenniums old. The museum is a well organized museum with all the artifacts displayed systematically and explained very well. The relics that are displayed create nostalgia in you when you think of those days without the technologies of today.... More

Centrally located museum, with details of the exhibits given in English and French, as well as Vietnamese but the collection is just bits and pieces of excavated pottery. So this is really one for archaeology buffs.

This museum was small, dark and quite uninteresting. Granted, we are not usually museum people, but this place was mostly pottery and other dusty old artifacts. I'd give this place a miss unless you love museums, are a anthropology fan, or have nothing better to do in Hoi An (which I would find hard to believe!)

A little light of content but interesting nonetheless. Worth the short time needed to get round it and some good learning about the local area

I am surprised that others have rated this little museum so highly. Perhaps they are archaeologists or anthropologists with a special interest in minor ancient civilizations. For the "man in the street", it offers an attractive account of this 2,000 year-old culture, with informative photos and text, and the whole museum is very well organized. The artifacts themselves are fairly... More

This museum is among one of the many that stand testament that ancient civilizations in the east are far more sophisticated than we credit them to be. The artifacts on display and the write ups that accompany it give great insight to the trade, socio-political leanings and thoughts of that time... Truly remarkable... I can such much else without doing... More

This is more like a Sa Huynh art museum. They display the items that reflect the culture and the traditions of this long lost civilization. Worth the money and worth the time for this place.
