Turn-of-the-century antiques on display in HCMC 

August 4, 2011

 

Three hundred century-old antiques are on show at Ho Chi Minh CIty’s Vietnamese History Museum from now until this December, Tuoi Tre reported.

The exhibition, held in tandem with the “Antiques in the 21st century’s first decade” seminar, gathers several precious antiquities not only from Vietnam but also from other Asian countries including Thailand, Laos and China.

The exhibit highlights a diamond statue traced back to the 19th century, collections of ancient Vietnamese and European money and Go Sanh pottery (made from 13th to 15th century in Vietnam’s Central region) donated by Allison from New Zealand.

The Vietnamese History Museum is located at No. 2 Nguyen Binh Khiem, Dist.1, HCMC.
