Hanoi Museum makes debut

An inauguration ceremony for Hanoi Museum was held in Hanoi on October 6 to mark the 1,000th anniversary of Thang Long – Hanoi.

The event was attended by Vietnamese leaders and representatives from UNESCO, international organizations, embassies of some countries in Hanoi and the capital city’s citizens.

On display at the museum were thousands of objects from different stages of Vietnam’s history and photos introducing the images of Hanoi in the past and at present. A bonsai exhibition was also held during the event.

Addressing the inauguration ceremony, Pham Quang Nghi, Secretary of the Hanoi Party Committee emphasized Hanoi Museum is an outstanding cultural work reflecting the images of Hanoi in the integration and renewal process.

This is a beautiful museum with modern and unique architecture and a cultural wonder of the capital city and the nation, he said.

At the ceremony, the National Assembly Chairman Nguyen Phu Trong said the museum’s managers should classify antiques quickly, tap the museum’s potential in research activities and introduce local and international visitors to Vietnam’s history, and Thang Long – Hanoi. Mr Trong also urged the museum’s managers to preserve antiques to help future generations learn more about Vietnam’s history.

The museum is located near the My Dinh National Stadium on an area of nearly 54,000 m2 with a total investment capital of VND2,300 billion.
