Seminary & Hill-Tribe Museum information
This lovely old Catholic seminary was built in 1934 and is fronted by a sculpture of Mary and baby Jesus; notice that Mary is carrying a Bahnar-style backpack and is dressed in traditional tribal patterns. The 'traditional room' upstairs functions as an absorbing museum of hill-tribe life and the Kon Tum diocese, with English descriptions of rites and excellent examples of funerial 'sorrow sculptures', Jarai coffins, traditional weavings, gongs and other musical instruments and fishing and hunting paraphernalia.
