The Ho Chi Minh Museum in the city of the same name held a ceremony on August 27 to receive 229 items, documents and photos relating to late President Ho Chi Minh.

Among the noteworthy artifacts are a Movado watch that the President gifted to Justice Minister Vu Dinh Hoe in 1957, a Hero pen given to former Deputy Head of the Railway Administration Le Minh Duc in 1958 and five portraits of Ho Chi Minh drawn by prisoners at Con Dao prison from 1964 to 1971.

The museum has now received nearly 700 artifacts since launching a campaign calling for the items in 2010.

On the same day, the museum displayed hundreds of images of the outstanding individuals and organisations who have thrived in the “Studying and Following President Ho Chi Minh’s Moral Example” campaign.-VNA
