Tháp Khmer— The Khmer Culture Museum in the Cuu Long (Mekong) Delta province of Tra Vinh has welcomed more than 10,000 visitors after resuming operation a month ago. The museum suspended services for two years for a restoration.

Located in Tra Vinh City's Ward 8, the museum is an interesting place for tourists who want to study about the culture, materials and spiritual life of the Khmer people in the Delta.

The museum has many photos and more than 800 valuable items, including musical instruments and traditional farming tools. It also contains small replicas of Tra Vinh's 141 Khmer pagodas and statues more than 300 years old.

Built in 1995, the spacious area is surrounded by many flowers and ornamental trees. The museum is one of only two Khmer cultural museums in Viet Nam. — VNS
