The basics

The Da Nang Museum of Cham Sculpture is the largest collection of Cham sculptures in the world, with more than 300 pieces made from terracotta, sandstone, and bronze. The artworks depict a range of creatures and items associated with Hinduism and Buddhism, including gods and mythological creatures, altarpieces, and Shiva linga and yoni (stylized reproductive organs). The items come from various archaeological sites in central/southern Vietnam, including Dong Duong (Indrapura), Khuong My, My Son, and Tra Kieu. There’s also some information on the modern-day lives of Vietnam’s indigenous Cham people.

Many travelers to Da Nang visit this museum independently, but it’s also included on some guided tours of the city, along with other attractions like Marble Mountain and the Son Tra Peninsula.
