The scene at the exhibition.

Lasting for a month, the exhibition sheds light on the origin and meaning of each name and capital, which helps visitors gain knowledge on the history of Vietnam’s national building and defence in the past.

The wood blocks, recognized as World Documentary Heritage by UNESCO, represent an important part of the country’s feudal history. Under the Nguyen Dynasty, they were used to print information about social standards, articles on the lives and careers of the aristocracy, and historical events. They are original records from the time, making them very valuable.
