"First private museum" set up in Hue

The first ever private museum in the central province of Thua Thien Hue has been set up in downtown Hue City.

Researcher Tran Dinh Son 

The museum is owned by researcher Tran Dinh Son, who has been considered as a leading expert in ceramic wares from the feudal dynasties of the Ly, Tran, Le and Nguyen (early 11th century to mid 20th century). Son has amassed a large collection of ceramic antiques of wares used to cook and store food that he has displayed at various exhibitions in and outside the country.

The museum's location, at 114 Mai Thuc Loan Street, used to be the private house of Tran Dinh Ba, a royal mandarin under the Nguyen Dynasty and also Son's great great grandfather.

After 1975, the house was used as a State office, then a State-run shop before it was left unused for the last ten years.
