VietNamNet Bridge – The Hanoi Museum
was inaugurated last October, but will complete content designs and have
sufficient exhibits in early 2014. The current showrooms arrangements are temporary.

Le Van Duc, Deputy
Director of the Hanoi Construction Department said that the general design of
the museum showrooms has just been submitted to the Hanoi authorities for approval.

After being
approved, scheduled in June, the detailed design project will be implemented
for another one and a half of years. Until January 2014, the museum will have
enough exhibits.

The museum director
Nguyen Van Hung, admitted that with around 60,000 exhibits, which are mainly in
warehouses; Hanoi’s
history is not introduced completely.

“The current
display is temporary, so we don’t employ costly technical methods like making
mock-ups, etc, but use traditional methods,” Hung explained about the present
simple way of display.

Responding to a
newspaper’s report that the country’s most modern and expensive museum doesn’t
have a luggage room, Hung said the museum has just bought six cabinets.

The Hanoi
Construction Department’s vice chief, Le Van Duc, said that the total
investment in this museum is over VND2 trillion (roughly $118 million). From
now to 2014, an additional VND760 billion ($38 million) is needed to finalize
the display, raising the total fund for this work to nearly VND2.8 trillion
($156 million).

According to the
Hanoi Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism, the museum has welcomed more
than 600,000 visitors.

The Ministry of
Construction in early May decided to inspect two big projects in Hanoi, the Hanoi Museum and the Hoa Binh Park, which were implemented by the
Hanoi Department of Construction. Both projects were built to welcome Hanoi’s 1000th
anniversary, which felt in October 2010.
