Mekong Delta to host Vietnam’s first agriculture museum

A $17 million museum featuring Vietnam’s agricultural history and prowess will be built in the Mekong Delta province of Vinh Long.

The museum will be constructed on an area of 11 hectares in Vung Liem, a rural district. In preserving the value and legacy of Vietnamese agriculture, it seeks to recognize the significant contributions of the nation’s farmers, particularly those from the Mekong Delta.

The museum, built at a total cost of VND400 billion ($17 million), will have display sections that recreate the southern countryside during the old times. It will also have facilities for organizing events.
