Exhibition on world heritages in Da Nang City

An exhibition representing world heritages in Cambodia, Laos and Viet Nam opened in the central city of Da Nang on March 28, with the co-operation of UNESCO in Viet Nam and the Museum of Champa Sculpture.

The exhibition is part of a project to enhance the capacity and co-operation among 9 museums of the three countries.
It features 6 world heritages, including Angkor, Preah Vihear in Cambodia, Vat Phou in Laos, My Son and the Ho Dynasty Citadel in Viet Nam.

On the display are photos and articles which depict the preservation work of these heritages, together with 22 posters and exhibits conveying their beauty and values.

It is one of UNESCO’s activities to mark the 40th year of the World Heritage Convention (1972-2012).

Within the project’s framework, the Museum of Champa Sculpture will co-operate with UNESCO to implement monthly education activities at the museum and open for primary and high schools’ students in weekdays.

UNESCO Representative in Viet Nam, Katherine Muller, said that the exhibition was the result of close co-operation among the 9 museums of the three countries. The common value in culture and history would help increase the ownership in historical intellectuals and enrich the understanding in common heritages of the region.
