The approval of the project’s detailed plan will be the basis to call for investment. The city’s ambition is to build a premier Nature Museum with modern facilities and technical infrastructure in Vietnam, according to Hanoi’s authorities.

The museum will perform the functions of a great nature museum, fulfilling the mission of preserving cultural heritage, doing scientific research, educating science, and serving the community’s interests.
