About
Museum of Tarot (in short term, or sometime Museum of Tarot and Oracle, or officially Museum of Tarot and Occult), founded in 2016 (will officially open in 2017), is located in Can Tho City, in the south of Vietnam. The museum has three themes: Tarology, Cartomancy and Occult. The museum has a large variety of objects from 15th century to 21th century. The museum is established in an ancient noble hotel, called “the citron house”, under the Vietnamese renaissance style. This house is sacrificed for the museum by an old couple of lawyer, Anh Ngo and Duong Ho in 2016.

A Rare Museum
Sep 2019
Many of the Hotels and tourist attractions in Can Tho City, are in the Hai Ba Trung road area, and its surroundings. A good planning before visiting this site, helps to maximise the available time at hand and avoids unnecessary traveling up and down searching for a missed attraction.

We were staying at Kim Too hotel which is also located on Hai Ba Trung road. We planned and followed a circuit on foot as follows.
Kim Too Hotel→ 150 meters→ Ong Temple → 20 meters across the road → Ho Chi Minh Memorial → 90meters → Niem Kiew Wharf → 300meters → Can Tho Night market road → 500 meters→ Phua Huat Temple→ 90 meters across the road → Munirang say temple → 250 meters→ Tarot Museum → 500meters→ Bao Tang Quan Khu 9 (War Museum) → 260meters→ Can Tho Museum→ 230meters→ Kham Lon Can Tho ( Prison Provinciale-Colonial Prison)→ 500meters → Ninh Kieu Pedestrian bridge ( Cau di bo Ben Ninh Kieu) → 400 meters →Kim Too Hotel.

It was following this scheme that we reached the Tarot Museum.
We walked to this museum after a stopover at the Munirang Say temple, 250 meters away. It is nearby and easy to find.

We pressed the bell and the door was opened and the owner introduced us to the place. There are various ticket prices, and we chose the cheapest (100000 VND) where we tour the place on our own. A free bottle water is provided too. It is a two storey setup with hugh collection of artefacts, books, antique timepieces and card of all types from around the world.

We were gifted a deck of Tarot Card at the end of our visit.
We spent about 20 minits here. Since such museums are rare, it's worthy of a visit though it may be a bit overpriced.

Wacky and fascinating

It’s an interesting joint; the prices are quite high but they allowed my child in free. The ground floor smells very strongly of cats, but I guess that kind of suits the place.

The exhibits have some real gems but often the best exhibits are on the upper shelves and hard to see.

Some incredible old books and tarot decks.

They gave us a free mini thoth deck as we left, so I was pretty thrilled with that.

Tried to visit today. It might be good but they told us at the door that you need a two day reservation to visit so sadly we were not able to go in.

Knock on door if appears closed.. there will be someone inside to let you in. Amazing collection of artefacts, tarot cards and playing cards. Nice place to escape the busy street and enjoy the fans and interesting information. Gift of Tarot Card deck at the end of your visit. Well worth a visit if in Can Tho!

Not Open ???
Sep 2019 • Friends
My friend and I went to the museum on a Sunday morning. It should had been open but it wasn’t. We called the number given and the person told us that the museum is closed today but at 3 pm he is coming just for us to open it. So we returned at 3 pm and waiting half and hour but the museum remained closed. Sadly my friend had to leave that day without seeing the museum. I tried it the next day because the person also said that the next day the museum is going to be open all day. But well... again!!! Still closed and I’m not going the 4th time there...
This is just ridiculous...

It was shown that the museum will be closed at 10pm. However, this museum is closed at 8pm! Misleading info.

An unexpected and hidden gem of an experience!

Where to begin... the Museum of Tarot is a MUST SEE in Can Tho and was one of our favourite places in Vietnam! Granted, the subject of playing cards, magic and tarot does not spring to mind first when you think of the Mekong Delta, but Phillip’s passion for the subject is infectious. We left feeling like we’d learnt a lot and it was a real pleasure spending time with a collector who is clearly dedicated and keen to share his love and knowledge.
