“Attempted Visit & Location Update”

Duc Minh Private Museum
Reviewed March 12, 2015 via mobile

I have a love of jewellery, I don't wear it, but I appreciate it's beauty and wanted to see old collection there.

Firstly, the location on the map is off. It's about half a block further North-East and on the left (if facing North-East), best to go by the street number.

Sadly, I went here at 4pm, which seems to be a bit late. The security guard wasn't sure, but the (maybe) owner/manager/staff came out an actually shooed me away- mind you I was in daggy backpacker gear.

Cannot comment on the collection, but possibly don't rock up in flip-flops.

I am going to rate it 3/5. To maintain the original posters ideal (as I didn't actually get to see it), but - 1 because of the rude shoowing away.

Thank Symon-von-Vagabond
