Museum of antiquities to be established in Ca Mau (September 01, 2005)


Museum of antiquities to be set up in Ca Mau Culture Park with VND43bil worth of funds from auctions.

Until now Ca Mau City has not had a museum, and a collection 10,000 historical items have had no place for display. After three months of collecting, Ca Mau provincial museum together with HCM City Culture and Arts College have brought together a further 4,000 relic items, lent or donated by local residents.

In the past, antique dealers flocked to Ca Mau in search of antiques, especially porcelain, bronze items, and ancient furniture. Residents in Ca Mau Province have been selling antiques at bargain prices not knowing the true value of many items. Ca Mau authorities are planning to take necessary measures to stop the antique drain.
