What makes up the soul of the ancient pottery museum of the Perfume River is the convergence of nearly 5000 ceramic artifacts from many types of materials (pottery, terracotta, semi-porcelain, porcelain), many historical periods (from Sa Huynh - Champa to Nguyen Dynasty). Most are artifacts of Hue traditional pottery villages such as Phuoc Tich and My Xuyen. Arranged and displayed in a typical Hue traditional garden house, this collection tells a story about the ancient Hue residents' trading history and daily life.
With a dedication to the motherland of Hue, painter Thai Nguyen Ba and professor Thai Kim Lan established this unique museum. The exhibition is the achievement after 40 years of collecting and storing ceramic artifacts recovered from the Perfume River and other rivers in Hue.
When you come to Hue, take a little more time to go to this unique exhibition space, listen to Ms. Thai Kim Lan's story about Hue, and listen to ancient pottery telling the story of the Perfume line.
