Updated at Tuesday, 25 Apr 2017, 17:12
More than 300 artifacts are on display at the "Kim Lan Museum of Ceramics and History" (Kim Lan Commune, Gia Lam District, Hanoi) to help local and international visitors understand more about the traditional pottery of the Capital over thousand years of civilization.
Kim Lan Ceramic and Historical House officially came into operation in March, 2013. This is the first communal museum in the country, and the birth of the museum also marks the first success of community archeology in Vietnam.
The Kim Lan Museum is open every Saturday and Sunday. The museum is about 200 square meters, with a stylized roof in the style of a pottery kiln and vertical kiln - pottery kilns of Kim Lan people from ancient to present.
The Kim Lan Museum now displays about 300 artifacts (including new ceramic pottery products and artifacts). Although space is not wide, artifacts are not numerous but quite diverse in types, materials, dates and are displayed in scientific and modern manner.
