With an area of 200 m2 and more than 1000 artifacts, this gallery introduces the development stages of the prehistory in Vietnam. Primitive inhabitants, through the course of their existence, have created the well-known culture, which developed continuously from the Stone Age to the Neolithic, about 300,000 to 4000 years ago.

Vietnamese history from the mid-19th century to the present day

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.
