Museums in Hanoi started welcoming visitors again from May 14.

The Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum and Ba Dinh Square are now open to visitors after 50 days of shutdown to enhance social distancing, according to the Management Board of President Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum.

From May 15, streets around Hoan Kiem Lake and surrounding areas will be pedestrianized again over the weekend. Music concerts and other timeout activities will be allowed to perform in the pedestrian streets. 

Over the past days, a series of museums in Hanoi have also been back to work such as the National Museum of Vietnamese History, the Ho Chi Minh Museum, the Vietnam Fine Arts Museum and the Vietnam Museum of Ethnology.

An exhibiting entitled “President Ho Chi Minh – Portraits” is being held at the Ho Chi Minh Museum.

On May 17, the Vietnam Museum of Ethnology will allow free access to visitors on the occasion of the International Museum Day (May 18). Lots of fascinating information and images about artifacts and the museum exhibiting places will be posted on its social media channels.

The Vietnamese Women’s Museum remains closed because of its renovation.

On May 14, Temple of Literature, Ngoc Son Temple and Hoa Lo Prison, the iconic places of interest of Hanoi, also resumed welcoming visitors.

Director of the Center for Culture and Science Activities at the Temple of Literature Lê Xuân Kiêu told  that the most important task of the relic when it reopens is to adhere to the disease prevention guidelines.

All visitors will have their body temperature checked, their hands washed with antiseptic solution and wear face masks before entering the premise. 

In addition, information boards displaying Covid-19 prevention guidelines in Vietnamese, English and French are placed at the entrance and around the site. 

Hoa Lo Prison resumed operation with the exhibition “Aspiration for Freedom” with three thematic areas including The Chains, Flying in the Midst of the Night and the Peace Song.
