Excellent Site

Taking a look back in time at how the 'others' lived was very interesting. The exhibits here are beautiful and well presented.

Been here as a part of a tour through Hue. Glad to have seen it, but honestly wouldn't have visited if it was not in the tour.

This is a small museum but quite good. Can enter as part of the citadel tour. Needs more explanation on exhibits. Set in nice grounds with cannons.

Pretty cool to see all of the antiques that date back many many years over the history of royalty. You get access to hear with the ticket you buy to access the Citadel

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

Found a sign mentioning this as we came to the end of our citadel tour. The museum is a brief stroll away. No admission charge - you just take your shoes off and stroll in. Three bored staff sitting at the entry desk, others located around the museum. The museum is small and has a range of exhibits with quite... More

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.
