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.

  • 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. 
  • If you have time in hue. If you like old King's throne, history. See if 30 minutes it takes. Be nice, on a rainy day?
