HO CHI MINH ARTS VIRTUAL MUSEUM
Welcome to the Ho Chi Minh Arts Virtual Museum, created by Canadian and Vietnamese academics, students and community members.
Around the world, President Ho Chi Minh is remembered and celebrated. In 1987, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) adopted a resolution which recognized Ho Chi Minh as a “Vietnamese hero of national liberation and great man of culture”, “an outstanding symbol of national affirmation, devoted his whole life to the national liberation of the Vietnamese people, contributing to the common struggle of peoples for peace, national independence, democracy and social progress”, and that “the important and many-sided contribution of President Ho Chi Minh in the field of culture, education and the arts crystallizes the cultural tradition of the Vietnamese people which stretches back several thousand years, and that his ideals embody the aspirations of peoples in the affirmation of their cultural identity and the promotion of mutual understanding.” (Source: UNESCO, p. 134-135)
This virtual museum is dedicated to the legacy of President Ho Chi Minh on the occasion of the 130th anniversary of his birth (May 19, 1890) and 75th anniversary of Vietnam National Day (September 2, 1945).
