Friday - 22/07/2011 21:05

The old house at 46 Nguyen Thai Hoc, Hoi An City will be turned into a museum of traditional medicine in Hoi An. This is a new task assigned by Hoi An City People’s Committee to Hoi An Cultural Heritage Preservation and Management Centre.

The museum will exhibit documents and objects relating to traditional Oriental medicine formed hundreds of years ago in Hoi An.

Recently, Hoi An City has received various items and documents on traditional medicine, presented by Mr. Jean Cousso, chairman of Hue’s Friends’ Association. The present by this Frenchman is very meaningful in the process of the establishment of this museum.

Hoi An City is famous for its old structures which have been kept intact, traditional products and beautiful tourist spots. The formation of this museum will help popularise not only one of its traditional trades, but also the image of Hoi An among domestic and international friends. It will certainly also contribute to preserving such a traditional trade.
