The restoration of Long An Palace in Hue throughout April 2008 will see some precious relics from its Royal Fine Arts Museum relocated for temporary display at An Dinh Palace. The Long An Palace was built on the northern bank of the Ngu Ha River in 1845 under the reign of Thieu Tri King.

The palace became the Khai Dinh Museum from 1923, where valuable items of the imperial palace were put on exhibit and for preservation.

Now known as the Hue Royal Fine Arts Museum and run by the Hue Historical Relic Preservation Centre, the palace houses a diverse collection of relics and fine arts from the Nguyen dynasty (1802-1945), the last imperial dynasty in Vietnam

The museum’s collection numbers over 10,800 items including 150 year old glass paintings, musical instruments, royal dresses, ceramics and utensils. The materials of these valuable relics include wood, bronze, precious stone, cloth, stone, bone, ivory and horn.

The temple was built in 1845 as the Bao Dinh Palace by then-emperor Thieu Tri in the area now known as Tay Loc Ward in Hue’s royal citadel.

Since 1885, when the royal citadel was lost to the French, the palace has been unoccupied.

In 1908, the wooden structure was moved to its present location at 3 Le Truc Street, some 3km from the previous location.

It was turned into the Long An Temple and used as a library for the imperial training school for mandarins of the Nguyen dynasty.

In 1925, emperor Khai Dinh signed a decree to use it for the display of imperial antiques, renaming it the Khai Dinh Museum.

The building was renamed the Hue Royal Citadel Antique Museum after the liberation of the south in 1975.
