With a special love of history and ancient artifacts, but with a busy work schedule, Thanh Thúy from Tan Binh district in Ho Chi Minh City just doesn’t have the time to visit museums.

Now, though, many museums have gone online, and she can easily admire collections of antiques without having to leave home.

These invaluable collections belong to the Ho Chi Minh City Museum of History’s online exhibition, where dozens of antiques are on display with full details on their origin, original owners, and value.
