  • 全名是占婆雕塑博物馆,离我们住的美爵酒店1.8公里,博物馆成人门票四万越南盾一人,展馆很小,走马观花十分钟的样子。都是美山出土的文物,没什么保护措施、除了中间挡起来的湿婆雕塑,其余都触手可及。不过因为个人对占婆文化很是好奇,所以兴趣很大。据导游说博物馆重新开放也就十一二年,不过政府似乎并没有投入多少越南盾,另外文物没有详细介绍,只有名字和年代。门口有英文讲解器租,出口有牌子宣传南中国海的事、还有个...  more »

  • 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.
