US Ambassador to Vietnam Michael Michalak yesterday presented a grant for US$ 30,000 to Nam Dinh provincial museum to restore and preserve a valuable collection of wooden religious objects.

This restoration project will help Nam Dinh Museum to preserve 57 carved wooden objects and to enhance the training and skill level of the museum staff.

The pieces, dating from the 17th to 19th centuries, were collected by the museum staff over the years and reflect a golden age of Vietnamese artistry.
