  • The collection of sculptures of the people Czampów, completing a curiosity at Da Nang. If you are a fan of history is required, you must include this intimate Museum in the center of the city. Recommend

  • The museum displays the age of the stone carving, very interesting, but do not understand the Vietnamese, you can only skim the general browsing, in addition, the museum is to collect tickets, the specific amount of money is not too remember, anyway, not expensive

  • The 60,000d are totally worth it if you like museums and history. Its a simple museum with a lot of sculptures and vestiges from the Champa that used to live in what's now Vietnam and Cambodia. Mostly know for My Son. A little bit more information in English would e appreciated, specially about the sculptures and the meaning of them. Maybe going with a tour guide would be a great option. There's also a photo exhibition in the second floor.
  • Nice venue, but a quick visit if you’re not into staring at stone. As a museum mostly visited by Western people (my uber driver said he only ever took foreigners here, my friend said he once went as a kid) some context) it lacks some context. Yes we have smart phones, but a good museum evokes interest rather than kills it.
  • Lots of historical things to see. If you have nothing to do in Danang. Recommended to come here. Ticket is cheap, and the place is not crowded.
  • Wonderful encounter with ancient Vietnamese sculptures! I did not make use of a guide but it was still very interesting and time well spend to strole through the museum! Hopefully without a noisy Chinese tourgroup.
  • It is great. I can see and study Vietnam's history. And there is many things to study.
