“Worth the D30,000 if you like culture”
Reviewed August 26, 2011

We visited My Son when we were in Hoi An, and wanted to visit Tra Kieu as well, but the guides told us everything was in this museum in Danang, so when we arrived here, we took the opportunity to take a look.

The museum is well organised, but the lack of English subtitles was a little alienating. Get a guide if you can afford it.

“Cham Museum was wonderful”
Reviewed July 17, 2011

If you are interested in Asian history, Asian art with beautiful old statues this is the place to visit. Most all the pieces are from the ancient Cham Kingdom. We went with my teen age daughter and 4 of her cousins. They all were very impressed and we all had a good time. Entry fees were Adults: 30.000 VND (about $1.50 American) - Students: 5.000 VND (about 25 cents American) - Children (sixteen years and below): free

“Best Cham Exhibits Anywhere”
Reviewed April 25, 2011

The Museum of Cham Sculpture is at Danang. The Cham people occupied the area from about the 4th to the 16th century. The museum houses an incredible collection of Cham artefacts, sculputres and materials - all in good condition. If museums are not normally a tourists top priory it is certainly worth making the effort to see this one. Tourists will never see better Cham exhibits than the ones in this museum.

“Great collection, definitely worth a visit”
Reviewed March 8, 2010

One of the things that made like so much my trip to vietnam, was art. The fine arts museum of saigon, the galleries full of todays painters and their peaceful and touching themes, the remarkable marble carvings in the marble mountains, near DaNang, and so on...
Said so, to see the Cham sculptures was a must... A great combination of history, religion and art... and the collection was very good! And the conserved condition of some was amazing!
A must see! If you stay in DaNang, take an hour or two of your time and go, it's worth a visit!

“Unique Collection in a Lovely Building”
Reviewed December 14, 2006

The Cham people were the dominant force in Central Vietnam from the 3rd to the 15th century, but they are little known today outside of Vietnam. A non-Vietnamese people (probably arriving from Indonesia) the Cham were heavily influenced by Indian civilization and Hindu/Buddhist religion. Their culture, art and architecture were quite different from the Chinese-influenced Vietnamese, who eventually overran them. Today there are probably less than 100,00 self-identified Cham people in Vietnam (and they are mostly now Muslim). Other remaining Cham communities are concentrated in Cambodia

The Cham museum in Danang has incomparably the best collection anywhere of Cham materials, mostly sculptures. This remarkable and beautiful collection is housed in a fine open-plan museum building, with cooling breezes blowing in through open windows. Very much worth a visit (this can be done as an easy day-trip if you'fre staying in Hoi An).
