HÀ NỘI — Museums in Hà Nội have signed a cooperation agreement to promote themselves, introduce their activities and raise people’s awareness of the value of their historic and artistic content on display.
The co-operation agreement will last from now to 2020, by which time a nationwide association of museums will be established along the lines of the International Council of Museums, according to Nguyễn Văn Cường, director of the National Museum of History.
“We will strengthen co-operation to upgrade the quality of the exhibitions with the intention of luring more visitors,” he said. “Accordingly, we will develop tours between museums to serve tourists, students and researchers. We will also set up virtual exhibitions and introduce ourselves on each others’ websites.”
The sites participating in the memorandum of understanding include the National Museum of History, the Museum of Ethnology, the Vietnamese Women’s Museum, the Hà Nội Museum, the Hồ Chí Minh Presidential Palace Historical Site and the Culture-Tourism Village of Vietnamese Ethnic Groups. — VNS
