This museum was in the process of renovations when I visited and only the small ground floor gallery was open. This mainly featured photography, maps of the local archaeological sites and some artifacts. You will easily see this in 15 minutes, so you may find this a waste of one of your Hoi An old town tickets until the renovations... More

This small museum has some very interesting artifacts inside, which have been excavated during archaeological digs around Hoi An. Whilst they obviously have considerable significance to those that are interested in, or knowledgeable about, Sa Huynh culture, there are only of moderate interest to a lay person such as myself. The funeral jars were certainly impressive, and some of the... More

There is so much more to see than is obvious from the front. The museum extends to the back & upstairs & links different spaces. The staff were helpful & informative.

It has a lot of collection of burial jars and the contains regarding the Sa Huynh culture in ancient Hoi An. The museum itself is not big but worth a visit for 30 minutes.

This is a small museum devoted to Sa Huynh culture in Hoi An and gives a lot of explanations along with the displays. If you are into death ( burial ), progression of people and their art, this is for you. It is of obvious historic importance and houses more than 1,000 artifacts.

This is a lovely well thought little museum. Showing interesting artifacts from Vietnam, and most particularly Hoi An. For a cultural and historical perspective on Hoi An, definitely worth a visit, but you won't need a lot of time. I think 30 minutes to an hour is more than enough for this little place. An exquisite building to walk through... More

This is a very small museum which needs a lot of TLC. It has what I believe is some important history, but is lacking any real financial support to do more research and improve the exhibits - hoping the new ticketing of the old quarter will help change this.

The Sa Huynh Culture Museum is housed in a beautiful colonial building. Unfortunately only very limited items are on display. It was less than what I was expecting from a museum.

The Sa Huynh Culture Museum in Hoi An is something Indians would empathize with as they have a civilization which is millenniums old. The museum is a well organized museum with all the artifacts displayed systematically and explained very well. The relics that are displayed create nostalgia in you when you think of those days without the technologies of today.... More
