Students learn about cultural heritages and enjoy royal games 

On May 18, the Hue Monuments Conservation Center held a program for students to visit and explore cultural heritages at the Hue Museum of Royal Antiquities.

Students from Phoenix school and some primary and junior secondary schools in Hue city  went sightseeing and learned about the Hue royal cultural heritages through the Nguyen dynasty’s antiquities at the museum. They also explored the mother-of-pearl inlaying steps to make delicate tools used in the ancient imperial palace.

According to Mrs Huynh Thi Thanh Van, Director of the Hue Museum of Royal Antiquities, this is an activity held on the occasion of the International Museum Day 2018 (May 18) with the theme “Hyper-connected museum: new approaches, new publics.” The program helps students approach Hue cultural values. In addition to knowledge, the hands-on experience will excite their interest to learn and love cultural values more.
