A private museum in the southern coastal city of Vũng Tàu featuring 2,500 ancient weapons collected from around the globe recently re-opened after a four-year shutdown.

The Worldwide Arms Museum, owned by British national Robert Taylor, 70, first opened in January 2012 on Hai Dang Street before it closed late that year due to “personal reasons.”

The museum is located at 98 Trần Hưng Đạo Street. It displays 2,000 items ranging from guns and swords to army uniforms of the 17th to 20th centuries, besides hundreds of 15th and 16th century military uniforms from Europe, as well as Japanese samurai costumes.

The museum is open to the public from 8am to 6pm daily. — VNS
