Ship museum planned in Hoi An
Update: Sep 16, 2009
Plans for a trading ships museum in the ancient city of Hoi An in the central province of Quang Nam have been made in co-ordination with the provincial Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism and Hoi An City.

People will have the chance to see ships and other seafaring memorabilia which used to be a part of the atmosphere at Faifoo trading port, giving them a vision of the exciting activities at this port in the 17th and 18th century.

When finished, the 24,400m² museum is expected to contribute to the introduction of Vietnamese culture and history in general and advertise Hoi An’s image in particular to visitors.
