On November 1, the Southern Women’s Museum in Ho Chi Minh City launched a new exhibition room that utilizes a ‘smart museum’ mobile application to enhance experience for visitors.

Guests of the new exhibition, themed “Portrait of Vietnamese Heroic Mothers of southern Vietnam and Ho Chi Minh City,” are encouraged to install the Bao Tang PNNB app on their iOS or Android devices, to be able to better explore the photos on display.

When a photo or an object is within a radius of one meter from the visitors, the app will show images and information regarding the exhibit, allowing the museum to provide more in-depth information, rather than just general introduction, to its guests.

The app also provides information regarding well-known historical figures, historical background, as well as video clips related to the photos being displayed, giving visitors better understanding of the works and the history behind them.

The museum also has further plans to add an audio function to the smart museum app to better instruct the visitors around the museum.

The ongoing exhibition features 70 portraits and 60 artifacts of the Vietnamese heroic mothers, with an aim to depict the American war in Vietnam through the characters’ perspective.

Heroic mothers are women whose children sacrificed their lives fighting for the country.
