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.

  • Suitable with you if you want to visit in Huế,after/next to Perfume River
  • Beautiful building with great exhibits. Great if you've got time, but not a must see.
  • Good!
  • Great exhibition in a beautiful old building.
  • Visit after the Citadel. CASS no, admission is free. Exhibits are not very much, but look interesting (clothes, tableware, games, musical instruments, coins). There is a small Hall with bas-reliefs and sculptures from the temples of Champa. Opening hours at the entrance to 17:00, but we were with 17:30 to 18:00, and the Museum worked.
