Quang Ninh Museum

Location: Quang Ninh Museum is located at 165 Nguyen Van Cu, Halong City, Quang Ninh Province.

Characteristics: Quang Ninh Museum was founded in 1960 under the original name of the Historical and Revolutionary Museum of Hong Quang at 5B Cau Cao, Hong Gai Town (Halong City now). In 1964, Hong Quang Area was merged with Hai Ninh Province to form the new province of Quang Ninh and the museum took its new name following the merger.

During periods of war, all documents and artifacts from the museum were evacuated to various sites while the building of 5B Cau Cao was leveled in the dust by bombing. In 1990, People’s Committee of the province decided to build Quang Ninh Museum at 165 Nguyen Van Cu, Halong City (former place of Quang Ninh Import and Export Company).

Exhibitions include: the early Halong culture; Ly and Tran Dynasties culture; culture of Quang Ninh's ethnic groups; times of wars; the history of the region's coal industry; revolutionary tradition of working class in mining area; Uncle Ho with Quang Ninh and Quang Ninh Province in renovation time. Over the last 40 years, the museum has found and preserved over 10,000 artifacts.
