Hoi An Museum (Bao Tang Hoi An)
The Hoi An Museum (Bảo Tàng Hội An) was once housed in the Quan Am Pagoda, which dates back to the 17th century. The museum has now been moved to a larger building within Hoi An Old Town, and inside visitors will find various artefacts chronicling the region’s pre-Cham, Cham, and colonial eras, with collections spanning thousands of years.
Sometimes known as the Hoi An Museum of History and Culture, the Hoi An Museum offers an insight into the heritage of Hoi An and the changes it has seen take place throughout the centuries. Collections includes such artefacts as historical photographs and drawings depicting the merchant period, including ceramic and pottery items that were part of the traders’ wares.
Elsewhere in the museum, there are some incredibly old jar-burial coffins originating from the Sa Huynh culture, plus family records that trace back the ancestry of the region’s inhabitants. Also among the exhibits are bronze drums dating back to the Dong Son civilization, while other items of interest include ancient scales and bronze temple bells and gongs.
