Online exhibition showcases Uncle Ho's belongings
The 3D online exhibition will help visitors better understand the simple lifestyle and revolutionary career of President Ho Chi Minh.
President Ho Chi Minh was renowned for his simple tyle of living. The image of the former president in his khaki suit, wearing a pair of rubber sandals and holding a palm-leaf fan is so familiar to many Vietnamese generations.

Vu Ky, the former secretary of Uncle Ho recounted that there were nights when the light was out, the radio could still be heard from his room. Ky thought Uncle Ho had fallen asleep so he entered on tiptoe to turn the radio off. The president stopped him and said “Leave the radio on so that the room will be warmer with human voices…”
The artifacts that associated with President Ho Chi Minh's simple lifestyle such as the rubber sandals he used to wear, his simple kakhi outfit and old radio, among others will be displayed at a thematic exhibition entitled Nguoi Di Tim Hinh Cua Nuoc (President Ho Chi Minh - the Person Who Brought Back Freedom to the Country).
The 3D exhibition themed President Ho Chi Minh’s life and revolutionary career is jointly held by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism of Vietnam and the Party Central Committee's Office at http://www.vptw.dcs.vn and http://www.baotanghochiminh.
The online exhibition will last until October 28.
