Gia Long was the first king (reign 1802- 1820) of the Nguyen Dynasty, Vietnam’s last imperial family (1802-1945).

The exhibition is being held on the occasion of the king's 200th death anniversary, and will last until the end of August.

Hue Museum of Royal Antiquities contains many collections from the 19th century.

The imperial seal, which is made of ceramic and coated with gold, was used by Emperor Gia Long to stamp documents and directives.

The exhibition displays different types of bricks that Gia Long chose to build Hue Citadel and his tomb.

Located at Hue Citadel in the center of Hue, Hue Museum of Imperial Antiquities was established in 1923 and originally named Musée Khai Dinh (Kha Dinh Museum), one of the first museums in Vietnam.
