Hoi An Museum Tours

The Hoi An Museum 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.

Also known as the Museum of History and Culture, the 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.

Practical Info

Most of the displays are in Vietnamese, with only a few English translations, so it’s a good idea to bring along a guide book for more insight into the museum's displays. Admission is gained by purchasing a Hoi An Old Town ticket; for 120,000 dong (around $5 USD) this ticket can be used to enter five historical attractions. Tickets are sold at various entry points to the Old Town.
