Quang Ninh Museum
Spreading nearly 24000m2 on the most beautiful coastal road of Halong City, Quang Ninh Museum is not only an indispensable place for culture vultures but also a unique structure for youngsters to check-in. The museum's design takes inspiration from charcoal - the typical mineral of Quang Ninh Province. From the outside, it looks like a giant black mirror.
