Visitors to the museum will have an opportunity to go on a journey back in time through thousands of years to admire a boat’s hull, an eight-metre-tall temple, large bronze drums, funeral items, jade spears and large dragon heads.
Other objects on display will include jade jewellery from the Stone Age, arrows, animal-head earrings and a two-metre-tall Buddha statue.
The exhibits from the collections of eight museums throughout Vietnam, as well as pictures and videos about the landscapes and cultural heritage of Vietnam, will make this a must-see event.
This exhibition focuses on archaeological discoveries in the past 60 years that are less known in Europe; it is being held under the auspices of Vietnamese Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism Nguyen Ngoc Thien and German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier.
In recent decades, Vietnam is the only Southeast Asian country to have conducted a large number of archaeological excavations and to have built many museums.
After the LWL Museum, the exhibition will be held at two other museums in Germany until 2018.
