DAC LAC - Viet Nam's first coffee museum will open soon in the central- highland city of Buon Ma Thuot.
More than 10,000 rare exhibits that illustrate the history of coffee have been transferred to the museum's proprietor - the Trung Nguyen joint stock company - from the world's biggest coffee museum owner Jens Burg of Germany.
About 100 objects from the collection are on display at Trung Nguyen Coffee, No 7 Nguyen Van Chiem Street, District 1, HCM City.
Visitors are shown how coffee has been made from the beans to a cup throughout history.
"We define Buon Ma Thuot with its variety of coffee and its contribution to building Viet Nam coffee's world brand as coffee city," said Dac Lac Provincial People's Committee deputy chairman Dinh Van Khiet.
Professor Thai Quang Trung welcomed the national coffee museum.
"Coffee has two values that need to be confirmed," he said.
"It's herbal value and value to inspire people to create and develop."
Brazil, Ethiopia, Britain, Germany and Japan have coffee museums.
