People view the display at the Tay Son exhibition of over 400 antiques in porcelain, stone, wood, paper, bronze and iron from the Tay Son period of 18th century that are being exhibited at the HCMC History Museum. Over 32 years, the movement of Tay Son peasants led by Nguyen Hue resulted in the leader declaring himself emperor with the title Quang Trung in 1788. It was a major landmark in Vietnam’s history that was of great material and spiritual value for Vietnamese. Although the Nguyen Dynasty tried to destroy these heritages, some still remain.
