HÀ NỘI — An exhibition reviewing the development of the Vietnamese Women’s Museum over its 30 years of existence opened in Hà Nội on Saturday.

Themed ‘Three Decades of Devotions and Dreams’, the exhibition showcases photos, documents and objects used to exhibit and restore works at the museum.

The museum was founded by Nguyễn Thị Định (1920-92), a leading figure in the Vietnamese struggle against the French colonial government and in the American war, when she was a chairwoman of the Women’s Union.

The museum and its exhibition pay tribute to the role Vietnamese women in history and today, said Lê Khánh Hải, deputy minister of the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism. 

“After four years closed for renovation, the museum hosted many exhibitions in a scientific and eye-catching way with modern equipment,” he said. “The museum provides precious information on traditional culture and issues of contemporary society, especially women’s issues.”

The exhibition will run during three months at the Vietnamese Women’s Museum, 36 Lý Thường Kiệt Street, Hà Nội. — VNS
