Overwhelming antiquity space in the heart of Hue 

Nguyen Huu Hoang, the collector, is not only popular in the collection world with the costumes of the Nguyen Dynasty, but also famous for owning up to thousands of antique items of all kinds. Anyone who have the opportunity to enter the space located in his house (at 10 Nguyen Sinh Cung Street, Vi Da Ward, Hue City), will definitely be overwhelmed by the ancient items.

“I have collected all of these items for nearly 30 years, since I was a young 18-years-old boy. And until now, that passion is still consistent, and attached to me,” Nguyen Huu Hoang, the collector who has just turned to 47 years old, shared the journey to his own passion to collect antique items.

He has travelled to the South, to the North, and to everywhere in the country for unique and interesting antique items, to study and research them, and if there is "fate", he will also be possessed of them.

As a generous, cheerful and approachable person, many people like him; thus, he sometimes accidentally "grabs" antique, unique and rare items. “It is not about money when it comes to buying anything you want. In addition to taking time to pursuit them, there must be fate,” Nguyen Huu Hoang shared, and added that there were many antique items that he had spent many years travelling many times in remote mountainous areas to collect them.

In his exhibition space, there are currently thousands of antique items that can be named such as porcelain, pottery, wood, etc., items dating back to thousands of years. This is also a place where antiques collectors, enthusiasts, and visitors frequently go to, to share and chat with the owner.

In addition, in the recent time, he has also collected a lot of paintings by Hue artists, as well as fine arts nationwide. Many valuable items of Mr. Hoang are displayed and exhibited to the public across the country. He also donates some to the museum.
