Situated on Hoang Sa road in Da Nang city’s Son Tra district, the exhibition house was inaugurated on March 28th, is 18 metres high, and was constructed on an area of nearly 1,300 square metres, using a capital of over VND43 billion.

The flame – the signal of patriotism - is designed on the foundation of a national flag.

Over 300 documents and exhibits are on show in the house, besides screens displaying documents on the country’s establishment of sovereignty and continuous administrative management since the Nguyen Dynasty. The documents are divided into 5 subjects throughout the history of the establishment, geographic position and Vietnam’s sovereignty over Paracel islands set in legal documents and maps which are circulated domestically and internationally.
