To keep, conserve, research, and promote the tangible and intangible heritage values of Vietnamese scientists.


The idea of establishing the Vietnam Center for Heritage of Scientists and Scholars comes from doctors at the MEDLATEC hospital, and the MEDLATEC company has invested comprehensively with the hope of expressing gratefulness and venerating teachers and scientists.

The center is a multipurpose organ that is both museum and library, as it fulfills the functions of storing and researching. Up to now, the center has researched and collected thousands of heritage elements from scientists in different forms such as: paper documents, audiovisual documents, block objects, and scientists’ memoires.

The center has initially promoted values throughout some publications and exhibitions, including two books: Memory Heritage of Scientists (six volumes) and Object Stories (three volumes); and the exhibition Aspiration to Learn and to Create. In addition to the office in Hanoi, Vietnamese scientists’ heritages park at Bac Phong commune, Hoa Binh Province, is being built. This park will function as a place to store, introduce, display, and promote heritage values of scientists as researched by the center.
