In September 1979, the People’s Committee of Ho Chi Minh City chose Nha Rong as the Ho Chi Minh Museum – Dragon House Wharf. The name was taken from the two dragon-shaped symbols on the top of the building. Over time, approximately ten million people, both domestic and foreign visitors in Vietnam travel, have visited the Ho Chi Minh Museum. In addition, events such as artistic festivals and the introduction of new members into the Youth Union and Communist Party have been held in this museum.
