The museum showcases thousands of photos, objects and documents, from drafts of his famous poems, to the pens he used to compose poems, as well as his working desk and tea table where he used to sit and discuss poetry with his friends.

The museum has been transformed from the original memorial house that was founded in 2009, seven years after his death, by his wife and his three children to commemorate their beloved husband and father.

To Huu Museum, which is to celebrate 100th birthday of the poet, is located at D9 Thang Long International Village, Ha Noi. After the opening day on Sunday, the free entry museum will open to the public every Saturday, from 9am to 5pm.
