From where i came from, museums tended to be tacky, artificial and simply overly done for tourists without any semblance of authenticity.
Thence when i went to Dinh Bao Dai, i was floored at the authenticity of the place. Much of the furniture was definitely from the time period and many of the rooms did look like they were untouched, Whether or not the furnishings were indeed used by Bao Dai is debatable, but one thing was for sure, the authenticity of the place was kept, in that you felt transported back to the time and could literally imagine how he lived in the spacious, but simply palace.
You can also take photos with the emperor's and express clothes for a nominal sum of VND$40,000 per person to rent the clothes. It was fun and we had a great time.
I enjoyed Dinh Bao Dai and learning more about his history and the history of the place.
A must visit when going to Dalat.
