A private antique weapons museum owned by a British man has been reopened in the southern beach town of Vung Tau after being closed in late 2012.
The Worldwide Arms Museum, the first private museum in Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province, has a collection of more than 1,000 army costumes and weapons from England, France, Mongolia, Turkey, Vietnam and China.
Robert Taylor, 66, said he has been collecting army costumes and weapons since he was 19. He said he will leave this collection to Vietnam, his second home.
Taylor said a container with more than 500 items is being sent to Vietnam by his friends abroad.
The museum opened in January 2012 on Hai Dang Street before it was closed late that year due to “personal reasons.”
The museum is now located at 98 Tran Hung Dao Street, Vung Tau.
