Museum is always a good site to learn about the culture and history of the place you are visiting. If you are driving through Da Nang, it’s suggested take an easy tour to the Cham Museum established in 1915 according to the motifs of ancient Cham Architecture.
Sitting right in the center of town, the museum looks much larger from the inside than it seems on the outside. It houses 297 stone and terracotta Champa sculptural works made between the 7th and the 15th centuries, which were formerly scattered across central Vietnam and ranked the most extensive and diverse collection of Cham art in the world.
Besides showrooms displaying masterpieces of Champa art, the exterior exhibitions offer another perspective. The temples and towers are considered to be sculptural artifacts. Intricate flowers and leaves decorate the brick walls in a beautiful fashion, figures of gods and animals were carved on sandstones for worship. Spend an hour here you’ll find that it's well worth the effort. Though art works showcased are not well-captioned in English, our guide will have you covered.
Non Nuoc Beach and Da Nang Cathedral are only a few distances away, so consider a visit to them. If you can't get enough of Vietnam by only a slice of it, you may check out this sample itinerary which offers a panoramic view of Vietnam.
