The museum of Da Nang was earlier located in the Le Duan Street but it shifted to Dien Hai Rampart in 2011. Spread across a display area of 3000 meters square, it marks the first fight of Da Nang soldiers along with various wars and significant historical events. The museum houses a total of 2500 items dating to ethnic groups in Da Nang and Quang Nam and the period of merican takeover of Vietnam.
Consisting of three floors, the museum houses a vast collection, ranging from the antiques of Da Nang in the prehistoric period to the traditional musical instruments of the tribes residing in Quang Nam to the extensive information about the culture of Sa Huynh.
The Da Nang Museum quickly became one of the major tourist attractions, receiving visitors from places near and far very soon after its inauguration ceremony in 2011.
The first floor displays the vast collection of the natural ecosystem of the city of Da Nang. From geological and hydrological to climatic and agricultural, the range of the extensive antique artefacts is endless. It also showcases the ways of life of the fishermen in Da Nang, some photographs of Da Nang before 1975, the ancient industries of handicraft and cake making, and the popular profession of Non Nuoc stone carving.
The second floor of the museum is home to a collection that dates back to the 1850s, during the invasion of the French and the Americans in the city. Several photographs and antiques belonging to the time of the Party Grassroots Organization are also showcased. Articles and pictures on the patriotic movements circa 1930, remnants of the postwar battlefield of Quang Nam, South Vietnam, and Da Nang are also present.
The third floor of the iconic Da Nang Museum is primarily dedicated to the ethnic communities of Da Nang and showcases a collection of their production labour tools, their traditional attire, jewellery, musical instruments, as well as their beliefs at the time. Detailed information on the weaving profession of these communities as well as their customs and rituals are also of great interest. This floor also houses a movie theatre, with a seating capacity of thirty people. It shows various documentaries on society, history, as well as the cultural practices of the residents of the city of Da Nang.
