Veterans from the central city of Da Nang donated 35 wartime objects to the municipal museum last Friday, two days ahead of the Vietnam Cultural Heritage Day (November 23).
The 35 military items included uniforms, canteens, haversacks and hammocks used during the Vietnam's victories over American and Cambodian Pol Pot's Khmer Rouge forces from 1954-1975 and 1979 respectively.
Venerable Thich Hue Vinh, a local superior Buddhist monk, presented the museum with a special rotating wooden table crafted by local carpenters.
The newly-donated exhibits were added to a total of 13,000 objects maintained by the museum, 2,500 of which are on regular display.
The museum is located in the heart of the city at 24 Tran Phu Street.
