Hue Museum of Royal Fine Arts, Hue
Concierge.com's insider take:
The lost splendor of the Nguyen dynasty, which ruled Vietnam from 1802 until 1945, is displayed at the Hue Museum of Royal Fine Arts. Housed inside an all-wood palace built in 1845, the museum is notable for its atmospheric setting and sumptuous royal artifacts, including furniture inlaid with mother-of-pearl, ceremonial weapons, and silk gowns.
Open Tuesdays through Sundays 7 am to 5:30 pm.
