Le musée de la sculpture cham est un musée présentant des œuvres de l'art cham et qui situé près de la rivière Hàn (Sông Hàn, or Hàn giang; 汗江), dans la ville de Đà Nẵng autrefois appelée Tourane en Annam au centre du Viêt Nam, dans le district de Hải Châu. Le musée de l'Antiquité cham imaginé et proposé en 1902 par Henri Parmentier et qui en a ensuite dressé les plans, fut créé en 1915. Il a d'abord été baptisé musée Henri Parmentier, du nom de l'archéologue et architecte qui en a été l'initiateur. En effet, il a passé sa vie en Indochine et particulièrement au Cambodge et a consacré sa vie à étudier et restaurer les temples cham et Khmers. Devenu musée de la sculpture cham, il abrite la plus grande collection au monde de la sculpture cham et est devenu une destination touristique populaire et incontournable avec deux cent mille visiteurs par an dont 90 % sont étrangers. Le centenaire du musée (1915-2015) a été fêté lors de la journée du Patrimoine vietnamien le avec la présentation d'un projet de rénovation financé par la Ville de Đà Nẵng dont la réalisation est effective en 2016 : restauration de tous les bâtiments, rénovation et mise à niveau des galeries.
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.
Various objects. Good space. Good guides for foreigner. 60.000 VND (2.5 USD/pax). Professional
Moderately interesting museum with good artifacts but lack of explanations. Not too big and can be visited in 30-45 min
Great.collection of art about which I knew nothing before my visit. Well worth the time.
Great place for the family. Bring a nice camera and be prepared to stay for about 2 hours. Excellent thing to do while it's raining in the afternoon or for a short morning trip. Best done in the late or early morning when there are fewer tourist buses. Also make sure your camera or phone has a good charge because you will take at least 100 photos each.
Not a very big museum but one that I feel anyone should visit if they're going to My Son as some of the sculptures had been moved here. Some of the pieces are quite informative but not for all. It's non-aircon but ventilated by fans placed around the areas. I believe it can be suffocating on very warm days.
Enjoyable museum with great artifacts from the Cham era. No AC so be ready to roast like a coffee bean in hot months! 2 hours more than enough time. Worth the 60k ticket.
A perfect museum to learn about the Cham people. It's centrally located and had English explanation which was a huge plus. All of the exhibition is indoors so it's a perfect place to spend an hour learning about the Cham.
If you don't have more time and really wanna know something about where you are. This is a good place to learn and know more about the history of Vietnam and champa Kingdom as well as the artifacts of Cham people from thousands year ago. There are many relics collected from a lot of provinces along the central of Vietnam. Especially, the great artifacts in the early 9th century from My Son sanctuary which was recognized as a world cultural heritage site in 1999. Make sure that you have a local guides to share with you about the interesting stories and historical facts when you are here.
Lovely museum - entry fee is 60K no matter if you’re a student, child, or whatever else works. The museum features a wide variety of sculptures from the Cham tribes, with a lot of Buddhist influences. Also shows traditional crafts and insights into the Cham way of life. The museum is quite large and has many galleries, some also showing beautiful photographies of Vietnam. Worth a visit for sure! Just be aware that there isn’t any aircon - fans for sure, but it can get quite hot.
I found the exhibits here really fascinating. The sculptures are incredibly beautiful and full of life, even amusing at times (to modern eyes). It was an excellent complement to our trip to My Son. I did a little research before we came about the history of Vietnam, the Cham, and the "Indianization" of Indochina and I think all that served to orient us better. There were books available at the giftshop, but they were labelled with prices twice as high as those at the My Son gift shop, so we passed. There was a photography exhibit on the second floor of the museum with beautiful pictures of life from all over Vietnam, and well worth seeing.
This museum is very interesting! You can learn a lot about the Cham history! And if you like museum and history, this place is for you! But the price... Around 100 000 dongs (don't remenber) is too much expensive!
Impressive museum! The art of Champa originates from the Hindu. Wonderful Champa architecture! Wonderful Apsara art! Tears for a nice nation was perish!
Before or after visiting My Son, you must visit this museum. It provides context to help you understand the Cham people. Though a different empire, I believe this visit also helps bring into perspective the kind of world SE Asia was during the rule of the Khmer people in Angkor and the Siam empire.
