The Da Nang Museum has been presented with more than 70 objects, documents and photos reflecting the central city’s history and culture, courtesy of organisations, individuals, researchers and collectors nationwide.

The precious exhibits are expected to contribute to historical research, while improving collections and enriching exhibition activities in the museum, thus educating future generations to preserve and uphold historical heritage from the locality.

At present, the museum is displaying more than 2,500 exhibits on an area of 3,000 sq.m, focusing on the themes such as the natural and social history of Da Nang city; the history of revolutionary struggle; evidence of US army destruction in Da Nang and the cultural identities of ethnic groups in Da Nang and Quang Nam province.

As part of the activities to welcome Vietnam Cultural Heritage Day (November 23), the museum also kicked off an exhibition of paintings chosen from collector Nguyen Ba Lan’s collection.

On show are works by famous Vietnamese painters such as Luong Xuan Nhi, Nguyen Duc Nung, Cao Ba Minh and Tran Van Tho.

On the same day, the Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism of Quang Nam province also received hundreds of precious antiques, including 43 artifacts from the Dong Son Culture - a bronze age culture from about 1000 to 1 BC - and many found in shipwrecks in Quang Nam province’s territorial waters recently.-VNA
