Hue cultural museum moves to new location
THUA THIEN – HUE — The Museum of Hue Culture has moved to a 6,000-sq. m French-colonial-style building overlooking the Huong (Perfume) River at 23 – 25 Le Loi Street.
Thua Thien-Hue Province authorities will spend VND53 billion (US$2.5 million) to renovate the building, which was previously used by the city's People's Committee. Since its founding in 1989, the museum has moved several times.
The museum contains items that feature Vietnamese and Cham bronze and ceramic artefacts, and photos and documents related to historic events in Hue. — VNS
