Located in the heart of the city, located on the Ha Long Bay, the museum is designed as a mountain of black coal .. in the heart contains many mysteries. Come to discover the human history of Quang Ninh. Is a very selfile ok.

This is a very big museum. It is clean and airy with lots of very interesting exhibits. You might need a guide unless you understand written Vietnamese. Ranges from pre history to coal mining and Ho Chi Minh.

Interesting museum about local culture and way of living of these people, one of the few places in Vietnam not crowded and therefore plenty of space and time for every body to see well all the goods exposed.
