via Hanoi Times/Vietnam Net, 23 April 2023: French experts have suggested building an on-site museum dedicated to the relics of the Thang Long Imperial Citadel in Hanoi to preserve and promote its archaeological heritage. The experts also shared their experiences in protecting excavation pits and managing rainwater and groundwater surges to promote the site’s values and strengthen heritage education.
A large underground archaeological museum with direct access to the excavation pits can be an attraction for visitors to Thang Long Imperial Citadel.
Building an on-site museum of Thang Long Citadel relics is among the ideas raised by French experts to promote the value of the archaeological site in Hanoi.
The ideas were presented at the seminar “Promoting the Value of Thang Long Imperial Citadel Archaeological Site” held at the 12th Vietnam-France Decentralized Cooperation Conference on April 14-16.
With many layers of culture and history, the Thang Long Imperial Citadel is not only a symbol of Vietnam’s feudal regime but also an attractive and curious destination for international tourists. However, the heritage site located in the heart of this city is facing difficulties in promoting its value due to many reasons.
