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

Included in your entry ticket to the citadel it is worth leaving via the east side gate (Hien Ngon Gate) and taking a short walk to the museum. It is rather small but there are some stunning pieces here to complete your tour of the dynasty.

This museum, while quite interesting, is really terribly small, the pictures on this page shows almost the whole length of it. The museum consist of a single room with lots of furniture, and some smaller objects from different periods of Vietnam history. The garden outside displays some old canons. While quite interesting, don't plan more than 1h in there. Entrance... More

We didn't go to this museum, but went to the Le Ba Dang Art Musuem located at 15 Le Loi Street. This is a good collection of a very famous Vietnamese artist and we found his art to be very beautiful and it was well presented. We're not sure why this attraction is not on trip advisor, but if you... More

Disappointing, disappointing, disappointing. More enjoyable to spend your time outside in the heat negotiating with the local cycle rickshaw drivers which is neither enjoyable nor fun. Glad we did it just to make sure we didn't miss something otherwise exciting. Don't bother...

A free electric car takes you to the Museum from the Imperial City otherwise I might not have made it. Shoes off before you enter the building which is really a large room with some furniture and china. The building is attractive. The garden is nice with some sculpture and there's an interesting plant nursery down the road from it.

This museum houses some china, porcelain and furniture from the Imperial Palace. It is interesting to see, but there is very little information about it. The dates are very vague and there are very few descriptions. The house itself is very nice.
