The Imperial Museum of Hue is a gallery of antiques displaying
collections of bronze, pottery, chinaware, Phap Lam enamel, court robes, head-gear and
personal belongings of former Vietnam Emperors.
It is a 7-compartment, 2-bay building constructed in the
"double" architecture, originally called the Long An Palace (Emperor's Security)
in the Bao Dinh Residence of Tay Loc precinct. When French troops took Bao Dinh Residence
for their headquarters in 1885, Long An Palace was removed and materials were stored. But,
in 1909, by order of Emperor Duy Tan, they were moved to the present-day site (3 Le Truc
St.) where was built the New Library and Office of Association of Friends of Old Hue.
It served later as the Khai Dinh Museum in Emperor Khai Dinh's
time, in 1923. The building (former Long An Palace) housing the museum is a monument of
remarkable value. The Wooden panels are covered with 35 poems and essays composed by
Emperor Thieu Tri.
