To Huu was born as Nguyen Kim Thanh in Thua Thien Hue Province in 1920. His poems have been a great source of inspiration for the Vietnamese soldiers and people for decades.

The To Huu museum was redesigned and upgraded from a memorial house with the assistance of former Director of the Vietnam Museum of Ethnology Nguyen Van Huy and graphic designer Dam Ca.

Covering 120 square metres, the museum provides visitors with a comprehensive view of the poet, whose life and career were closely associated with the country’s revolutionary history, through the original documents, photos and other artefacts on display, with the support of a multimedia information system.

The museum also features a section that recreates part of the house at 76 Phan Dinh Phung Street, where he and his family had lived for more than 40 years until his passing in 2002.

The museum is open to visitors every Saturday from 10am to 5pm.
