A museum of ancient pottery will open at the end of this year in the central province of Thua Thien Hue. The museum will be filled with pieces collected by Vietnamese-born German Thai Kim Lan.
Over the past 30 years, Lan, Ph.D, has gone out of her way to collect more than 7,000 artefacts fished out of the Huong (Perfume) River, with the dream of setting up a museum to display the items.
“These artefacts reflect the history of the land,” said Lan. “They will tell stories enabling us to better understand the cultural and historical value of the land.”
The Huong River Museum is being set up at Lan’s ancestral temple on Nguyen Phuc Nguyen Street, Huong Long Ward.
