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.

II106:Prophetic Imagery Rediscovered: Unveiling the Lost Tarot of Nostradamus

 Lost Tarot of Nostradamus


The Lost Tarot of Nostradamus is a Tarot deck based on illustrations attributed to Nostradamus, which were rediscovered in 1994. John Matthews of Grail Tarot and Wil Kinghan of Shaman’s Oracle collaborated to create the original 78-card deck. This Tarot deck was published by Tuttle Publishing.

The Tarot is based on illustrations believed to have been created by Nostradamus and were only rediscovered in 1994. In the National Library of Italy in Rome, a researcher found a manuscript containing 80 mysterious images, thought to be the work of the enigmatic seer Michael de Nostredame, better known as Nostradamus. The deck consists of 78 fully colored cards along with an illustrated guidebook.

The images in this Tarot deck were shared from a newly discovered 16th-century manuscript (in 1994), believed to be based on a previously unknown work by the prophetic Nostradamus. This deck combines the prophetic words with Tarot’s predictive imagery, creating a set of cards that can only be described as “sacred” by a foremost seer.

II103:A Limited Edition Masterpiece: Rediscovering the Jean-Pierre Payen Marseille Tarot (1713)

 Tarot of Marseille


The Tarot of Marseille Heritage Jean-Pierre Payen, created in 1713, belongs to the Tarot de Marseille category. It closely resembles the Tarot Dodal by Jean Dodal. However, there is some debate about whether the design or the designer is the true origin of the Tarot Dodal, even though the Tarot Dodal is often dated earlier (and only approximately specified). This Tarot deck was crafted in Avignon by Jean-Pierre Payen, a cardmaker and engraver, in 1713. He had settled in Avignon since 1710.

The Jean-Pierre Payen Marseille Tarot is a limited edition, with only 1500 copies produced. It is renowned as one of the most beautiful Marseille Tarot decks, referred to as “Type I” (distinguished from the “Type II” specifically by the World card’s cloak and the Devil card’s belly adorned with a human face). This reproduction is based on original copies from the Swiss Museum of Games in The Tower of Peilz, Switzerland, the Playing Card Museum from Issy les Moulineaux in France, and the Beinecke Library at Yale University in the United States, allowing for the exquisite reissue of this Tarot deck that had previously never been reprinted.

The Jean-Pierre Payen Marseille Tarot consists of 78 cards and includes 2 introductory cards (in French and English). It comes packaged in a telescopic box, and its retail price is €33. You can find this Tarot deck for sale on the current website’s online store.

The Jean-Pierre Payen Marseille Tarot is part of the “Tarot of Marseille Heritage” project, aiming to preserve the tradition of the Marseille Tarot by creating accurate reproductions of historical Tarot decks, with utmost respect for the original published versions.

BB174: Golden Dawn Tarot

Golden Dawn Tarot


Certainly! Here’s an article about the Golden Dawn Enochian Skrying Tarot:

The Golden Dawn Enochian Skrying Tarot is an innovative, non-traditional Tarot deck that contains two decks in one. Let’s explore its fascinating features:

  1. Enochian Watchtower Tarot:

    • This side of the deck is filled with symbolic information related to the Enochian system of magick. Enochian magick is considered one of the most powerful magickal methods ever discovered.
    • The four suits of 22 cards each are designed for skrying, divination, and ritual work.
    • Each card represents an Enochian square, including correspondences such as elemental, astrological, geomantic, alchemical, tarot, Egyptian god, archangelic, angelic, kerubic, and Hebrew letter associations.
    • The symbols and images on both sides of any card are related, allowing you to learn more about the meaning by examining the other side.
  2. Western Tattvas Tarot:

    • On the other side of the cards, you’ll find the Western Tattvas Tarot. This extension draws from Eastern traditions used by the Golden Dawn.
    • The elements are associated with simple geometric shapes, providing a unique perspective.
    • The deck is ideal for astral projection or seeing onto the astral plane (skrying).
    • It’s also valuable for learning and teaching the concepts of the Enochian system.
  3. The Full-Size Book:

    • The set includes a comprehensive book that explains the divinatory meanings for both sides of each card.
    • You’ll find detailed explanations of all symbolism, enabling you to master these two powerful magickal systems.


  • Chic Cicero and Tabatha Cicero are Chief Adepts of the Golden Dawn, re-established by Israel Regardie.
  • They have written numerous books on the Golden Dawn, Tarot, and Magic.

In summary, the Golden Dawn Enochian Skrying Tarot is a magickal wonder, bridging Western and Eastern traditions. Whether you’re a practitioner or a curious seeker, this deck offers profound insights and connections.
