The goal of this Museum is to provide the community with an identity based in Vietnamese culture and heritage. The Museum strives to develop a secure connection with the community, providing confidence and helping people to grow as individuals and as members of their community. This engaging Museum aims to attract a diverse crowd to reflect the complexity of a changing society and to represent the community through various exhibits and programming. The Museum in the twenty-first century is not just a place to enjoy art, but also a place to raise questions and stimulate new thoughts and provoke discussion.


If a new museum based on traditional Vietnamese vernacular and cultural-spatial design were modified with a modern aesthetic and purpose of function, then a new dialog between history and a modern intersection of cultures can be developed that brings a new level of relevance to the purpose of a museum in 21st Century Vietnam.
