The New “Royal” Exhibition in HCMC Museum of History offer us a chance to understand more about the Vietnamese history through over 70 rare and valuable royal clothing and artifacts from the Nguyen Dynasty: clothes, jewelry, crowns and others.
The king’s costume is placed in the center; items and clothes of Nguyen’s Generals are located on the right side, while the left is dedicated to the officers. Behind the king throne, space is dedicated to the royal women’s clothes. The most remarkable piece is the king costume, belonging to King Dong Khanh (reigned from 1885 to 1889). It’s the first time the suit is introduced to the public. Besides, artifacts belonging to king, queen, crown princes, imperial mandarins and king’s concubines, go along with some royal objects such as jewelry chest and painted wooden shelves.
The exhibition runs until March 2017 at the Museum of Vietnamese History: 2 Nguyen Binh Khiem Street in District 1, HCMC.
