Dozens of objects from the American War have badly deteriorated while displayed outdoors at the Thua Thien-Hue History Museum.

After being relocated to 268 Dien Bien Phu Street, 16 items, including US A-37 aircraft, UH-1 and MIG-21 helicopters, and many kinds of tanks, armoured vehicles, and anti-aircraft guns have been left outdoors without any maintenance.

The A-37 aircraft was brought to the museum for display in 2012. It is facing serious deterioration due to a lack of maintenance and proper care.

According to leaders of the museum, a lack of funding is to blame.

The M107 self-propelled gun looks better after recent maintenance.

The museum said that they are going to submit a project to maintain all the wartime objects which would cost around VND1 billion.

Thua Thien-Hue History Museum was established in July 1989 and devoted exclusively to the exhibition and collection of more than 30,000 items related to the foundation and development of Thua Thien-Hue.
