On display are numerous documents and maps in Chinese, Nom (old Vietnamese writing using Chinese characters), issued from the 17th to the outset of the 20th century.
Worthy of note is a collection of four atlases and 30 maps compiled and published by China through historical periods, which prove China has never managed the islands.
The exhibition will remain open to visitors until July 23rd./.
