A private antique weapons museum opened in the southern Vietnamese resort beach town of Vung Tau on Saturday, January 7.

This museum belongs to Robert Taylor, an English man and  Nguyen Thi Bong, his Vietnamese wife.

This private museum showcases a collection of more than 1000 antique army costumes and weapons from England, France, Mongolia, Turkey, Vietnam and China. Famous battles such as Waterloo are also represented on the walls.
