On display are 65 maps published by western countries from the 17th century until today, research and publications by domestic and foreign scholars regarding Vietnam’s sovereignty over the two archipelagos as well as photos and documents describing Truong Sa island district’s socio-economic and cultural development activities during the national industrialization and modernization process.
