The Cham Sculpture Museum preserves sculpture items featuring the nation’s glorious period of culture and civilization.
The museum is located at No2, Road 209, Da Nang City. It was built according to French archaeologist Henri Parmentier and completed in 1919. It became a place to preserve and research Cham sculpture in the central region.

The museum architecture uses both European and Cham motifs. It has been extended twice, but the character of the original architecture has been well preserved.

The first extension started in the early 30s and finished in 1936, with two new galleries providing display space for the objects added in the 1920s and 1930s.
