Covering 1,500 square meters, the museum makes use of all space by adopting digital technologies to meet the public’s demand.

Arising from the idea that Vietnamese press has accompanied with the country’s growth and history, the Vietnam Journalist Association embarked on the Vietnam Press Museum project including three project components museum display project, exhibit and material collection project and recruitment and training project.

The Prime Minister signed the Decision No.1118/QĐ-TTg to set up the museum on July 28th, 2017. The museum will be managed by the Vietnam Journalists' Association.

The museum management board has made efforts to collect press items and materials from August 2014 to July 2017. So far, over 20,000 exhibits and materials have been collected and kept in the museum. Of them, around 700 are rare items and materials reflecting significant events in the Vietnam’s press history.

Five periods of the Vietnamese revolutionary press of 1865 - 1925, 1925 - 1945, 1945 - 1954, 1954 - 1975, and from 1975 till present are displayed.

In addition, 26 movies about the history of the Vietnamese revolutionary press and a number of outstanding journalists will be screened to serve visitors./.
