The second area depicts the 1930-1945 period, when Nguyen Ai Quoc founded the CPV and led the people in a successful general uprising giving birth to the Democratic Republic of Vietnam.

The third area, from 1946 to 1954, portrays President Ho successfully waging a war of resistance against the French colonialists and leading national construction and defense in the North.

The fourth section describes the construction and defense of socialism in the North and the struggle for national reunification from 1955 to 1969 in the South.

The fifth displays documentary images on activities of the Vietnamese Party, State, and people since 1969 in the process of national development.

The exhibition aims at contributing to affirming the vitality of President Ho Chi Minh City’s thought, morality and style, which has become a great spiritual asset of the Party and people on the path to achieve the target of “prosperous people, strong country and a fair, democratic and civilized society”.
