  • Interesting collection of various sculpture's. A good insight into the lives and culture of the Vietnamese. Minimal entrance fee. A nice way to spend an hour or two.  more »
  • A very interesting museum of the old Cham culture and temples. Documents the restoration work being done on the Temples. If you like this, a trip to My Son is compulsory.  more »
  • We planned to visit for 1.5 hrs but left within an hour. Although museum was well laid out and some structures were well reserved, i felt there was insufficient information attached to each exhibit...  more »

  • I liked the giant map of Vietnam outside of the museum. It gave me a sense of the whole Vietnam. The sculptures were interesting. When our tour guide said we could spend an hour in the museum I was like no way. Is there so much to see? He's right though. There were a lot to see inside. Reading the culture and value of the old were nice.
  • It is museum, so if not fan of stone sculpture, maybe not place to go. But If you want see a ancient, magnificent hand carved statues and artifacts, This is definitely good place to go. However, 3 stars because there is no air-conditioning so it could little warm inside. It took, Hour, hour and half to take a tour in museum.
  • Brilliant when the tour groups leave... Great museum, sort of Nepal by the sea... So many Hindu images reminiscent of Kathmandu. Really worth a visit. High standard items very well exhibited. My favourite museum in Vietnam.
  • A nice place to visit. It will be perfect if the museum can provide brochures and audio guide device.
  • Worst museum ever. Please don't go. Wasted 60,000vnd for 5min tour. Size of your living room only. Staff there are rude, thinks u didn't pay for a ticket. Every time u came close the gate. He'll keep pointing u to buy tickets. It's hot and NO air conditioning!
