  • Dedicated to preserving Vietnam’s indigenous Cham people heritage some of the sandstone artefacts date as far back as the 4th century. It is a fairly well laid out museum, but limited English language...  more »
  • Beautiful museum which loves Hindu culture. Especially how everything has been preserved so beautifully. You can definitely wander around here for an hour and there are many benches that invite you to sit. You can photograph.

  • 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.
