Museum of Royal Antiquities, Hue
(2/5 based on 75+ reviews on the web)
Get a glimpse of Vietnamese dynastic treasure at Museum of Royal Antiquities, a traditional pavilion featuring ornate ivory pieces, gilded boxes, decorated urns, ceramics and lavish royal beds. This dark single story timber structure with pointed roof with exquisite wood carving houses a fine collection of antique pieces belonging to royal family, including gold seals, hand-stitched robes, and gilded books and silver screens. The centerpiece of a well-maintained garden is a royal urn surrounded by several muzzle-loading canons mounted on carved pedestals and a number of sculptures. Museum of Royal Antiquities is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Hue Edition.

  • Taking a look back in time at how the 'others' lived was very interesting. The exhibits here are beautiful and well presented. 
  • Been here as a part of a tour through Hue. Glad to have seen it, but honestly wouldn't have visited if it was not in the tour. 
  • This is a small museum but quite good. Can enter as part of the citadel tour. Needs more explanation on exhibits. Set in nice grounds with cannons.

  • Beautiful building with great exhibits. Great if you've got time, but not a must see.
  • Great exhibition in a beautiful old building.
