This might be the same exhibition that was featured here a couple of weeks ago, but this story carries a location: the Exhibition House at 93 Dinh Tien Hoang Street.

Viet Nam News, 23 February 2010
Ha Noi collectors found their own way to celebrate Tet – by displaying more than 100 artefacts from Viet Nam and neighbouring countries at an exhibition that opened in the capital.
According to Dao Phan Long, chairman of Thang Long Ceramics and Antiques Researching and Collecting Association, the artefacts have been sourced from the collections of 13 members of the association.
“These objects, in a variety of materials including stone, wood, bronze and ceramic are some of the most valuable collectors have gathered so far,” he said.
Through the objects, visitors can gain an insight into ancient Vietnamese cultures through the bronze objects of the Dong Son civilisation from 2,000 to 2,500 years ago, the Chinese occupation period from the 1st to 10th centuries, and the Dinh, Le, Ly, Tran and Nguyen dynasties.
