    ‘Royal Treasures – Golden Books of the Nguyen Dynasty’

    Twenty-two books made from gold created under the Nguyen Dynasty, the last in Vietnam (1802-1945), are being showcased to the public for the first time after decades of preservation. Since 1945, when Emperor Bao Dai abdicated, the museum has collected more than 3,000 precious items of the dynasty. On display are also ten related objects and two book boxes, all made from precious metals and subtly engraved. The objects are valuable not only because of their gold and also because they are unique art works carved by the best Vietnamese craftsmen of the time. They are also ideologically significant for honouring the filial piety advocated by the dynasty. Tickets: VND40,000.
