  • I enjoyed this museum. It was recommended by a guide at My Son. The only negative was that some areas were too dark to read the information about the exhibits. Lights were there, but not on.
  • Unique museum related to Cham story. Unfortunately, like most of museums in Vietnam, both curatorial content and museology is very poor. Furthermore, there is no air-conditioning, lighting is off so it's quite difficult to really appreciate the story and the collection at its own value.
