Quang Trung Museum

The Quang Trung Museum is located in Binh Thanh Commune, Tay Son District, 45km from Qui Nhon City, and 5km off the highway. This museum is dedicated to Nguyen Hue (Quang Trung), a national hero of the 18th century. Nguyen Hue was one of the three brothers who led the Tay Son Insurrection. In 1788, he led his troops from Phu Xuan (Hue) to the north. It took them 35 days and nights to reach Thang Long (Hanoi), where they defeated 290,000 Chinese invaders, thereby liberating the royal capital. He declared himself Emperor Quang Trung the same year.
Visiting Quang Trung Museum, visitors will enjoy the music and demonstrations of Vo Tay Son, a traditional martial art of Binh Dinh. A display of Emperor Quang Trung 9th generation’s niece playing the 11 battle drums can also be seen.
