The Hanoi Museum in Nam Tu Liem district was built with a total investment of more than VND2,300 billion (US$98.6 million). In the first phase, the museum project was completed in 2010 and it is an architectural work to celebrate the one-thousandth anniversary of Thang Long - Hanoi.
The exhibition of artifacts in the museum has been arranged in phases. By 2015, it would have showcased artifacts with total value of VND800 billion (US$34.3 million). The deadline was missed and rescheduled to 2019 and again the exhibition could not be opened to the public.
The followings are photos showing staff of the museum preparing for the exhibition:
