  • Very nice museum featuring beautiful statues and plinths of Buddhist gods. Audiotour was interesting with lots of good info. Would recommend to any culture history enthusiasts
  • A nice modest museum and interesting place to learn about Champa culture, had an excellent guide with us from Emerald VIP Services that helped bring the place to life for us
  • I visited the museum several years ago while on a tour of Vietnam. I was very impressed with the collection and its presentation. So much so that I did what I do not ordinarily do, purchase a replica in the gift shop. I was particularly interested in what was described to me as a sandstone sculpture of Shiva. It cost USD 600 at that time including shipping to the US. After a very long wait for it to arrive and process through customs I was able to place it in my garden. Within a few months and after several rainstorms I noticed the sandstone color was changing. To make a long story shorter, what was represented as sandstone turned out to be cement colored to look like sandstone. What a disappointment at such a cost! The museum totally misrepresented the item. Don't trust them.
  • a modest museum, beautiful sculpture but can't relate the story and history behind. no air conditioning and it could quite warm inside during noon time.
  • A lovely collection if Cham sculpture. Some beautiful examples of sculpture from the Cham civilisation that flourished in the area some 500 years ago.
