VTV.vn - The Vietnamese Women's Museum held a ceremony themed "Memories and Heritage" to receive pictures, documents, and exhibits from 23 individuals on Wednesday in Hanoi.

This was part of a series of activities that honour the Vietnamese Ao Dai and was jointly held by the Vietnam Women's Union and the Ministry of Culture, Sports, and Tourism.

At the event, Ambassador Nguyễn Phương Nga gifted the museum with two Ao Dai that she wore during the Ceremony to appoint the Ambassador, and the Ceremony to present the State President's credentials to Secretary-General of the United Nations Ban Ki-moon.

The museum also received 20 Ao Dai from 20 designers and 358 photos from journalist Đinh Quang Thành. Those items will be used for research and to promote Vietnam's culture and heritage.

The “ao dai” feature well-known Vietnamese heritages such as Phong Nha - Ke Bang National Park, Hoi An ancient town, and Central Highlands’ gong culture, among others.

Photojournalist Dinh Quang Thanh, a former reporter of the Vietnam News Agency, presented nearly 400 works to the museum featuring the beauty of Vietnamese women in labour and life as well as craft villages and local landscapes.
