Visitors look at a woodblock on show at the exhibition.

This is the first exhibition combining the Nguyen dynasty’s woodblocks, which are the world-recognized documentary heritage, and historical documents relating to the ancient citadel.

The documents give visitors an overview of the construction and architectural changes of the citadel’s central area from the seventh to the nineteenth century.

These documents also reassert the values in terms of architecture, construction techniques, and urban planning of the Thang Long imperial citadel as the centre of power of Vietnam during over 1,000 years.

They will also play a role in restoring and preserving the site.
