MN AGRICULTURAL MUSEUM

MN AGRICULTURAL MUSEUM

Hanoi, Vietnam

The Mieu Nha village has a central village market where people buy food and exchange agricultural products. The village market is always special for local people because it is the public domain where we can see very clearly the local culture and a sense of community. It creates an opportunity to create an agricultural museum to educate the public about the history of agriculture and new urban farming technologies which use less resources and increase productivity while local people and tourists can have access to local food and exchange of farming products. This is also a cross-programming intervention into the existing fabric of the village. The museum can link its  activities with other surrounding educational institutions such as the local primary school and universities. It helps to attract people outside into the village and raise public awareness about the importance of agriculture in the region.
