Several exhibits feature agarwood, a valuable asset from nature. Due to the resinous component of the non-timber Aquilaria tree, agarwood is a highly important substance for medicine and fragrance. These exhibits reframe the ancient wood, giving context into the traditional life in Vietnam.
The increase in the uncontrolled harvesting of agarwood from natural habitats has inhibited the natural regeneration of Aquilaria trees, putting the species' future in the wild in Quang Nam area in jeopardy.

Thunderstorms, animal grazing, insect and disease infestations are all known to cause physical injury or damage to Aquilaria trees, which leads to the creation of agarwood. These occurrences expose the inner parts of the trees to pathogenic bacteria, triggering Aquilaria's defensive mechanism to begin resin production. The development of various artificial induction methods has been substantially influenced by the natural production process of agarwood.
When being interviewed by VietnamTimes, Khalim from UAE expresses his great appreciation towards the Vietnamese Cultural Heritage Space saying thanks to the exhibition he learned a lot more about the depth of Vietnamese cultures and the value that daily objects and displayed exhibit means.
