Hanoi City Walk (English) – tour around the Revolutionary Museum
January 16, 2019 @ 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM70,000VND
We are excited to add a new English walk – this time a tour around the Revolutionary Museum. It is led by Mike who teaches English to the Vietnamese guides and he has kindly offered to lead tours for FVH around the museum.
The building at 216 Tran Quang Khai street (the former National Museum of the Vietnamese Revolution) was constructed in 1917 as the headquarters of the Indochina Department of Trade. In 1954, when the North was liberated, the Government Council led by President Ho Chi Minh decided to transform this building into a new Museum of the Vietnamese Revolution, which would showcase Vietnamese history from the mid-19th century to the present day. After 5 years of planning and development, the Museum was officially opened to the public on 6 January 1959.
The 29 Rooms of the Museum exhibits systematically progress from the 1858 attack by French and Spanish warships to the current products manufactured in Viet Nam.
