XQ HAND EMBROIDERY ART MUSEUM
How long should you spend in Hue, Vietnam? Well, you really only need a day or two to visit the Imperial City and the Forbidden Purple City. You need another day or two to visit the old Imperial tombs of the Nguyen Dynasty. For many visitors, that's all that Hue has to offer. However, the small city in central Vietnam has so much more to see! Don't rush out of town after only visiting the big tourist sites. Instead, spend a few days longer in Vietnam's old imperial capital to learn a lot more about the country's history and culture. One (FREE) way to learn a bit about Vietnamese traditional handicraft is by visiting the XQ Historical Village, on the banks of the Perfume River in Hue.
This organization seeks to preserve traditional Vietnamese art and culture through traditional Hue-style embroidery. The organization runs a free museum, and it's very much worth your visit.
This is definitely one of the best museums in Hue, and the best part is, it's free! The museum has a big collection with tons of amazing embroidery, from traditional Vietnamese designs to photoreaslistic portraits.
