    Small museum with little information or context. Beautiful sculptures. Audio guide was neither entertaining nor engaging. Monotonous. Order and position of sculptures was hard to follow and locate along with the audio guide. Tickets were inexpensive.

    Pretty good collection of Cham culture. Get the audio guide ($1) to get a better understanding.

    Entrance fee of 40,000 VND. There are some interesting relics and sculptures but the quality of the curation and display is really lacking. The interior is also extremely stuffy.

    A small but nice museum, takes about an hour to see everything, which is about all I can take in before it all starts to look the same. I would highly suggest the $1 audio guide to help learn more about what you are seeing. Located at the tail end of the dragon bridge

    Amazing artifacts from Cham civilisation. Pay the extra dollar for audio guide. It is worth it.

Where to stay in Da Nang

Da Nang contains surprisingly abundant hotel options, despite its relatively low-key tourism. The rainiest season lasts from September to December, while the drier spring sees more travelers; still, you generally don't need to book a room very far in advance. A broad range of hostels for backpackers on budgets clusters near the beach and on the west side of the Han River. Spectacular resorts line the oceanfront, many offering private beach access, spa packages, water sports, and diving.
