The Vietnam Museum of Revolution, along with the Vietnam History Museum are two museums that have been merged into the Vietnam National Museum of History, located at 216 Tran Quang Khai Street, Trang Tien, Hoan Kiem, Hanoi.
Vietnam Museum of Revolution – The first museum of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam, officially opened to welcome visitors on January 6, 1959.
When it was first born, the museum’s warehouse had more than 10,000 artifacts, images, and textual documents.
Now, that number has grown to over 8,000, including many collections; and a valuable collection for social science and humanities research, traditional propaganda, and education fostering national pride for generations of Vietnamese citizens.
The collection of artifacts is the foundation for the museum to organize the display of the historical development process of the Vietnamese nation in the near-modern period (from 1858 to the present).
The permanent display system of the Vietnam Revolution Museum uses more than 2,500 artifacts, images, and documents displayed in 29 rooms with a total area of over 2,000 square meters.
The content on display consists of three parts:
- Part 1: The Vietnamese people’s struggle for independence from 1858 to 1945.
- Part 2: Resistance war against invading forces to protect national independence and unify the country from 1945 to 1975.
- Part 3: Vietnam on the path of building a strong population, a strong society, a fair society, and a civilized democracy from 1975 to the present.
In addition to the three main parts mentioned above, the museum uses the last two rooms (rooms No. 28 and 29) to display the Gift Collection of the Vietnamese people and the World People to present to President Ho Chi Minh and the Communist Party Male; with nearly 300 original artifacts.
