 Hue Monuments Conservation Centre acknowledges the contribution of the researcher Ho Vinh.

Mr. Ho Vinh, a researcher in Hue City, donated to the Hue Royal Antiquities Museum a copy of the weekly magazine “Indochine (Dong Duong) Photo Journal” published in 1943, which includes an article about Musée Khai Dinh by L. Sogni. This is a valuable document in the study of the museum’s history.

So far in 2023, the Royal Antiquities Museum has received nearly 100 documents and artifacts from organizations and individuals who have a deep love for cultural heritage. These artifacts will be studied and displayed by the museum to serve the public.

Through the turmoil of the war, many objects from Hue Royal Antiquities Museum were lost, damaged, or had missing information. The museum needs the community's collaboration in supplementing and enriching the collection of artifacts, so it can fully reflect the valuable and rich history of this region, especially the importance of the last monarchy in Vietnam.

Artifacts and concerns about preservation

That the preservation warehouse and the display system are all reused from the renovated old building, so it is not suitable for the museum's function, and although the equipment has been invested, it still does not meet the requirements of preserving artifacts. Those are the situation that Hue Fine Arts Museum - a public museum established nearly 5 years ago, is facing. The concern for the safety of the artifacts and the desire to have a well-preserved warehouse are always the concerns of the unit's leaders.
