Let the Museum introduce itself

About Museum of Tarot

Museum of Tarot (or Bảo Tàng Tarot in Vietnamese), founded in 2016 (will officially open in 2017), is located in Can Tho City, in the south of Vietnam. The museum has three themes: Lithotherapy, Cartomancy and Demonology.

It is combined from six main collections related to Tarology:

Fortune Telling Cards (Tarot and Oracles decks), Historical Books and Documents on Cartomancy, Art of Cardmaking and Decoration of Fortune Telling Cards; Amulets and Talismans and Magical Tools; Lithotherapy Crystals and Charmestones; Demonological and Sacred Books and Haunted Objects.

The museum is established in an ancient noble hotel, called “the citron house”, under the Vietnamese renaissance style. This house is sacrificed for the museum by an old couple of lawyer, Anh Ngo and Duong Ho in 2015.


We would like to express special thanks to our honor doners and friends who have given us the precious opportunity to establish this wonderful museum.

Le Grand Etteilla


Jean-Baptiste Alliette created these Tarot cards, which were first issued around 1788. This deck holds historical significance as it represents the earliest set of Tarot cards designed under the supervision of a single visionary, specifically for magical purposes. Alliette’s name was reversed to form the title ‘Etteilla’ for these cards. Whether you appreciate these designs or find faults within them, they serve as the foundation for much of modern Tarot practice. The older, traditional cards provide a glimpse into the origins of Tarot, illuminating the dawn of magical interpretations that continue to guide us in contemporary usage. From their point of creation, these cards cast a bright light into the future for viewers.
