( Cham Pa Museum in Danang)

Cham Pa Museum is strategically located at the heart of the ancient Cham Pa Kingdom, Da Nang. It was opened last 1919 but it took 20 years to collect artifacts and in the end, some were sent to France, Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh for public viewing. Most of the common artifacts were left at the museum and the management then saw the need of expanding of the museum before being officially opening to the public in 1939.

The museum reflects the lives of Cham people, how their culture, tradition and religion are still evident despite of being a small group in a big country with different beliefs and culture.
