Neighborhood: City Center/ District 1
Overview

This museum contains a somewhat disjointed collection of items that pulls together artifacts from the Bronze Age to the French colonial era. Of particular interest is the hall of seventh and eighth century Cham sculpture. Cham was one of the independent kingdoms in central Vietnam dating from the second century. The resistance against foreign invaders is not just recent, the museum highlights this struggle from as early as the first century. The museum is on the same site as the Botanical Gardens and City Zoo.
