The exhibition skilfully leads visitors to the stories behind the old items, most of which involve dollops of passion and practice.
Initiated by Nestlé Milo, the exhibition aims to inspire children to achieve their dreams of becoming champions.
The three-day event is attracting thousands of people and their children.
Le Bui Thi Mai Uyen, senior manager of the Milo brand, Nestlé Vietnam, said the event is among activities to mark the 25th anniversary of the Nestlé Milo in Vietnam.
