ĐÀ NẴNG — An exhibition featuring 100 colour photographs of Đà Nẵng City’s 20-year development will be opened from December 26 to January 10 at the city’s Museum.

The museum said the photo exhibition will review the developments since the city separated from Quảng Nam Province and came under the direct control of the central government, along with Hà Nội, HCM City, Hải Phòng and Cần Thơ.

The exhibition, entitled Đà Nẵng – a 20-year Development Course, will focus on the process of urbanisation, administrative reform and environmental protection.

Đà Nẵng, which was the capital of the former Quảng Nam-Đà Nẵng Province, is expected to play a prominent role in ASEAN and Asia in the future.

The museum covers 3,000sq.m and displays 2,500 objects, photos and documents related to the culture of Đà Nẵng and neighbouring central provinces.

The museum also preserves a collection of 11 ancient, cast-iron cannons (made during the Nguyễn Dynasty between 1802-1860) that were unearthed in digs at the Điện Hải Citadel from 1979-2008. — VNS
