The museum is in a nicely maintained building constructed over one century ago. The collection is excellent. Definitely worth a visit.

The museum was located near the citadel, in a small, single-storey former palace. The entrance fee to this museum was included in the ticket price for the Imperial Citadel. They had pieces and replicas of items used by the royal family, including gold seals, books made out of gold, silver, silk, and gorgeous hand-stitched robes. The gardens surrounding the building...

We found this little museum, one of the first in Vietnam, to be somewhat underwhelming. None of the antiquities are particularly old, many of them came from France in the nineteenth century, and we found the descriptions to be very uninformative, and left you asking many more questions. There was a group of staff all sitting around just inside the... More

this superb building is a wonder in itself both inside and out. The exhibits are mostly fascinating photographs but also a few articles of porcelain, furniture etc. Take a walk round outside to see round the grounds and the crumbling back of the building,. Wonderful atmosphere and very tranquil.

The museum is interesting and ornate, if a little rundown. Unless you are really fascinated by the artifacts and want to read all the information you should be able to browse the museum in 1/2 hour. Small entry fee.

Very small Museum with Interesting collections of Royal Antiquities. Very well maintain and no people at all when i was there. Very peaceful to enjoy this piece of history by your own. Just use the entrance ticket bought for the Citadel and just few meter away from the Right entrance of the Citadel. Certainly recommend this attraction for history lovers.

There are many sights in HUE, this is considered as one of the "MUST SEE" sight. As HUE was once the key city in VIETNAM, HUE is full of historical sights than another other cities in VIETNAM. More so, this is also the home of the ancient rulers, who were from CHINA and built their palace here. The buildings take... More
