About
The Da Nang Museum of Cham Sculpture is one of the first museums built in Vietnam by the French. The main building was constructed in 1915. It evokes some motifs of French colonial architecture in the early twentieth century and resembles the image of the Champa temples - towers in Central Viet Nam. Visitors will have the opportunity to contemplate more than 400 artifacts on display, including National Treasures and others representing the masterpieces of Champa sculpture in ten centuries (from 5th to 15th). The artifacts were made in a variety of materials, such as sandstone, terracotta, and metal. Grounded in various themes from fertility symbols, deities, mythical animals and architectural decoration from the Hindu and Buddhist, they express the features of cultural and religious values of the Champa people over many generations. The Da Nang Museum of Cham Sculpture is a must-see destination for visitors wishing to discover the culture and heritage of Central Viet Nam.

I couldn't believe how much of the Egypt culture is revealed in the Cham history. This is referring to their clothing, pottery during the same period of time. They also mummified their royalty in the same fashion. Amazing history. You can see the Cham architecture all over Vietnam today..

Prior to any visit to Vietnam, it is fundamental to learn a little bit about the "Champa" culture, as it is quite unknown to most of us in Western countries. The "Champa" was an "Indianised" civilization, within the "Greater India", that flourished, between 192 AD up to around 1700 AD, along the coasts of today's Central and Southern Vietnam. Artistically, it adopted the style seen in many Indian rock-cut temples, sandstone sculptures and reliefs. The "Da Nang Museum of Cham Sculpture" houses, since 1919, the world's largest Cham collection, with sculptures and objects found in Da Nang, Quâng Nam, My Son, Trà Kiêu, Dông Duong, Tháp Mam, Quâng Tri, Quâng Ngai, Quâng Binh, Binh Dinh and Kon Tum, among other archaeological sites in Vietnam. The "Champa" legacy consists mainly of sandstone sculptures, reliefs and brick buildings, expressing themes and functions connected to their religious life, which synthetizes elements of Hinduism, Buddhism and indigenous cults. As the only museum in the World exclusively dedicated to the "Champa" era, it is absolutely unmissable at any visit to Da Nang, principally after its recent renovation! Enjoy!

Museums abound in every corner of the world. However, those housing items unique to specific cultures, faiths, regions, etc. often carry a different significance. The Da Nang Museum of Cham Sculpture is one such interesting showroom. The collection of sculptures is the largest of its kind in the world and purportedly dates back to the 7th century. Amongst its impressive Cham artifact are exquisite sandstone sculptures.

This museum gave you insight into the cham culture with statues, relics from various temples, sanctuaries, etc. It was laid out well by the different excavations, periods of time, etc. There was so very much to see and observe. We enjoyed it very much and developed a appreciation for Cham peoples.

Stopped here on way to the airport and found the whole experience very interesting. Fascinating to see the many sculptures from the Champa Kingdom. I could happily have spent more time here but as we were due to catch a flight and had a visit to an orphanage to do en route our time was a little limited. Definitely a place to go to in Danang.

The Cham Sculpture Museum is a great way to get to know a milenary culture that we haven't heard too much about. It features from tiny detailed pieces to monumental ones. Although it's not a huge building it shows a big amount of sculptures portraying mythological characters discovered in ancient temples.

We popped in to this museum slightly unsure as to what we'd find and slightly ambivalent in any event.

In truth, we'd underestimated it. It had numerous carvings and statues covering the Chan period that we're really well displayed and curated.

We only stayed 30mins but it gave a good feel for the Cham people & culture and cost nearly nothing to enter.

I'd recommend if you're staying in Da Nang or passing through in any event.

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.
