At the opening ceremony of the exhibition

The exhibition featured over 200 objects and photos related to the chemical warfare in Vietnam and the country’s efforts to overcome the consequences of bombs and mines and residues of toxic chemicals left by the past war, and recover the environment.

The exhibition was divided into three main topics: cleaning up the environment in areas contaminated with residual toxic chemicals, removing war-left unexploded ordnances, and restoring the “dead land.”

The exhibits tell audiences about sad wartime and post-wartime stories.

Over the past 40 years, the governments of Vietnam and the US have made their great efforts to heal war wounds and overcome war consequences, especially cleaning land from toxic chemicals left by the war. These activities have contributed to recovering the environment, improving health and lives of people in the Central, Central Highlands and Southern regions of Vietnam.

The exhibition will run till December 22.
