“Worth a visit.”
Reviewed November 2, 2011

A collection of stone artifacts of cham origin. The display itself is odd but at last the pieces are preserved for future restoration I guess. Cheap entry at aound $2.

“Valuable piece of Vietnam historical past.”
Reviewed October 28, 2011

The cham museum has lots of displays of statues and information dating back centuries. It has got high historic value and well maintained. I was facinated to know that Hinduism was prevalent in Vietnam prior to the coming of the Chinese kings and infulence. During my visit there were many Europeans visitors eagerly checking and photographing the displays. The Museum opens during the office hours only (7.30 am to 5.30pm). The current entrance fees is 30,000vnd appox usd 1.5 the place is a must to visit if one is in Danang city.

“Interesting concept for a museum”
Reviewed October 25, 2011

This is an odd one. Most of the relics are built into the structure of the building which is possibly better than them getting stolen from the actual Cham site but its so unlike what you expect from a museum.

We only spent 40 minutes or so walking around but if you go to Da Nang and don't see this you're missing an interesting piece of Vietnamese history and culture. Entry was only 30,000VND and it's easy to find at the river end of the main street.

Like most tourist sites this has its fair share of unrelated items for sale in the gift shop including fake watches. You have to love it!

There's not much else around the museum but there's a tremendous amount of work being done on the river front I'm sure in a year or two it will be a busy tourist centre.

“Relics of a fascinating past”
Reviewed October 25, 2011

Housed in an old but airy colonial French building, the Cham Museum is chock a block full of statues, carvings, pictures and photographs of an ancient empire that rivalled the Khymers in power and influence for centuries. Indeed, only after visiting the Angkor area in Cambodia and seeing the bas-relief carvings of numerous Cham-khymer conflicts did we realise just how mighty and advanced these two cultures were for their time.

Looking at these relics from a forgotten time, you almost sense that southern Vietnam reached its cultural and technological peak centuries ago when the Champa kingdom was at its peak. Similar for the Khymer period in Cambodia. Certainly nothing since rivals the grandeur of the Champa time. It's hard to contemplate that while Europe was still in the dark ages, two mighty civilisations lived virtually side by side in SE Asia.

This exhibition was much better than we had expected, and we enjoyed it thoroughly.
