we visited this after the hue citadel since it is in close proximity to the citadel. the museum is quite small but well maintained. it houses silverware, porcelain, antique furniture and the royal wardrobe. it reflects king khai dinh's flamboyant personality

This museum is located in a gorgeous historic house -- it is worth a visit just to see this beautiful building. The displays are interesting and have English-language signage. (I really liked the exhibit of royal documents edited by the kings themselves -- some redlined with new text inserted just like it would be done today!) It’s a great little... More

While the imperial city has some nice items on display, I find Museum of Royal Antiques a much better place to visit. It might not be too big, but it hosts a collection of stunning bonsai trees made out of metal and crystal. It is worth visiting just for those artifacts, and there are much more.

Interesting to see furniture, seals and clothes from the palaces. Worth a visit if you are not too tired after walking miles round the Forbidden Purple City. It is down the road and down a side street (turn right out of the exit gate and then take a left) and not well signposted. Doesn't take long as it just one... More

Do research before visit the Citadel or go with a guide, because easy to miss out on this part, although it is included the Citadel ticket price. Not busy at all and well worth to wonder around to see the traditional style Vietnamese house, the displayed porcelains, furnitures and costumes.

When you buy the ticket to visit the Citadel , it includes a ticket to this museum which many visitors missed out. The museum is outside of the citadel, so it's a bit difficult to find. You need to go to a gate (Hien Nhon?) on the right side from the main gate, where you can hop on a free... More

These truly are treasures. Take your time to just wander around & explore. There is a lot here to take in. It's a pleasant switch from visiting temples & markets.

After visiting the Citadel we got the free golf cart to the museum outside the gate near the theatre. The museum is a few minutes away and is set in some lovely grounds with cannons that were never fired. The museum is a large single buidling. There is an exhibition of treasures from antiquity, ancient necklaces, bracelets, pottery, earrings and... More

This was part of our day tour, it's quite small, but worth going through. They have some really nice pieces. The only draw back is you aren't allowed to take photos inside. Still glad we went.
