This museum is among one of the many that stand testament that ancient civilizations in the east are far more sophisticated than we credit them to be. The artifacts on display and the write ups that accompany it give great insight to the trade, socio-political leanings and thoughts of that time... Truly remarkable... I can such much else without doing it justice other than you'd have to go there and see it for yourself to appreciate the culture and it's people that existed eons ago.

This is more like a Sa Huynh art museum. They display the items that reflect the culture and the traditions of this long lost civilization. Worth the money and worth the time for this place.

Comme le titre que j'ai ecrit, il n'y a pas de grande chose a voire dans ce muse. Quelques jare funeraires et queques bujoux. C'est tres difficil de conprendre une culture.
