The Precious Heritage Art Gallery Museum
Updated: Jan 29, 2019
A relatively new stop on the tourist map in Hoi An is this amazing Museum put together by French photographer Rehahn.
Allow yourself to be transported to the furthest reaches of Vietnam and enjoy dwelling in the company of some of French photographer Réhahn's most highly precious collection. Preserved and told through stories of how Rehahn came to find these tribes you will get to experience 5 rooms:-
* The Fine Art Room
* Central and Southern Vietnam
* Northern Vietnam
* Coffee room
The Precious Heritage Art Gallery Museum is located in an ancient French colonial house, which is situated in the UNESCO part of Hoi An. It is the culmination of 7 years of his on-going exploration of Vietnam’s many ethnic groups. It is estimated there are approximately 54 ethnic tribes, Rehahn has already captured 49 of those and feature them all in this museum.
The 500 sqm art space is home to more than 60 authentic traditional costumes, over 200 photos, precious artefacts and stories translated in French, English and Vietnamese. The building itself is located in a tranquil part of town, away from the hustle and bustle, in what is known as the Old French Quarter.
You should allow about an hour to explore all of the rooms and enjoy a coffee at the same time.
Having met Rehahn and had a personal tour by him you can easily see his love and desire to celebrate and keep alive central Vietnamese history. Having already honoured 49 ethnic groups, we think he has only about 5-6 to go.
The Gallery also includes Rehahn's works from North Vietnam, India and Cuba. They are amazing photos and some of them adorn my walls at home.
Rehahn’s love of Vietnam and its people knows no bounds and is evident in the gallery he has created, so definitely include a visit in your stay.
26 Phan Boi Chau Open from 8am to 8pm – 7/7 days FREE ENTRY
