Viet Nam’s archaeological treasures to be exhibited in Germany
Update: Sep 29, 2016
More than 400 of Viet Nam’s archaeological treasures will displayed at the LWL Museum in Germany from October 7 to February 26 to celebrate more than 40 years of diplomatic ties between the two countries.

A boat-shaped coffin and funeral items will be displayed in Germany

Visitors to the museum will have an opportunity to go on a journey back in time through thousands of years to admire a boat’s hull, an eight-metre-tall temple, large bronze drums, funeral items, jade spears and large dragon heads.

Other objects on display will include jade jewellery from the Stone Age, arrows, animal-head earrings and a two-metre-tall Buddha statue.

The exhibits from the collections of eight museums throughout Viet Nam, as well as pictures and videos about the landscapes and cultural heritage of Viet Nam, will make this a must-see event.

This exhibition focuses on archaeological discoveries in the past 60 years that are less known in Europe; it is being held under the auspices of Vietnamese Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism Nguyen Ngoc Thien and German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier.

In recent decades, Viet Nam is the only Southeast Asian country to have conducted a large number of archaeological excavations and to have built many museums.

After the LWL Museum, the exhibition will be held at two other museums in Germany until 2018.
