THỪA THIÊN – HUẾ — A farming museum with farm and fishing tools located near the Thanh Toàn bridge features the life of Thanh Thủy Chánh commune, 8km southeast of Huế City.
The farming museum, built in 2014, replicates daily activities of farmers in the village, and also includes information about the history and culture of the village.
There are about 200 objects and 100 photos divided by topic.
“These manual tools were used in the past to husk or grind rice, plough or rake the soil. The tools were closely linked with the locals who maintained them carefully and donated them to the museum,” said Nguyễn Thị Kiểm, member of the Thanh Thủy Chánh commune.
The objects include a stone grinder, porcelain bowls and plates, earthen pots, bamboo beds, bamboo cradles, and bamboo frames for carrying poles, rice carts, fishing nets, and fishing baskets.
Displays about weddings, Bài Chòi folk singing, and boat racing are also part of the exhibition.
As an attractive destination in Huế, the museum welcomes more than 100 local and foreign visitors each day. — VNS
