Hue museum a treasure house of Nguyen Dynasty antiques

Built in 1845 as a palace during the reign of King Thieu Tri, the third Nguyen king, it was later turned into one of the first museums in Vietnam in 1923, under King Khai Dinh. Its original name was Musée Khai Dinh (Museum of Khai Dinh).

The museum now displays collections of ancient Hue antiques, most of which originate in the royal family.
