Why Danang Museum is special ?
Museum of Da Nang was founded in 1989 and was originally located on Le Duan Street. In 2005 it was relocated to 24 Tran Phu Street where it officially opened on 26 April 2011.
The new museum incorporates the reconstructed walls of a citadel built by Emperor Minh Mang at the beginning of the 19th century. The three-floor museum houses more than 2,500 photos and artefacts, more than 1,900 of which are original and have been collected from Da Nang and neighbouring areas since national reunification in 1975. Many are on public display for the first time.
As they enter the museum, visitors will be impressed by a large sail-shaped relief representing Da Nang’s founding history.

24 Tran Phu street, Hai Chau District, Da Nang
One could witness history dating back one thousand years in the form of Hindu/Champa culture and Hindu Gods . Well maintained and with good descriptions on site.
o far there are exhibits on the ground floor, and (based on a discussion with one of the employees) it seems that they are working of putting together more on the upper floor. Near the entrance was an exhibition of modern paintings (by a local artist), but after that the exhibitions followed the flow of time, from geology through what is known from archaeology and then history. This is a good site to visit first when in Danang.
