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.

This place surprised me in every way - it is overflowing with amazing artefacts of great quality most from inside the Imperial Citadel. This was the best museum in Hue by miles - really beautiful items well presented and cared for.

What a good museum this is. Lots of varied displays with old pottery, clothing, weapons abs house wares. This is a must do in a visit to Hue and Vietnam. Mostly when travelling in Vietnam visits seemed to be linked to the recent war or religious sites. Visiting this museum allows you to see tangible items including coins going back... More

If you really love museums, or are leaving the Citadel (from whence there is a free electric bus, which we could not find, and suspect had taken Buddhist monks somewhere - saw them leaving in it), then this is for you. Lovely building, lots of exhibits. But I seem to have been to so many better museums recently!

It wasn't great weather outside and we were a bit time sensitive, but the place has a lot to see and a lot of space to cover. I would recommend coming here if you have more than an hour or two to spend, and if the weather is nice!

The best part about this museum isn't what it houses but the "house" itself. The building reminds me of an old karate dojo that would be in a movie. It's made of dark wood and has a lot of carvings on the ceiling that are quite beautiful. As for the art and relics, they are cool as well. And not... More

like museums. Lots of very interesting estatues, stone stone stone. As a matter of fact this is one of the most comprehensive museums of Champa History - with lots of Hinduism and religion invloved. I consider since we do not come back a nice place to come!

This is a small museum a short distance from the Citadel which houses some of the royal family objects. It is located in what appears to be a temple, so removing your shoes prior to entering is required. The collection is small by imperial standards and nothing even close to what you might see in a museum housing the household... More
