A free exhibition titled "Viet Nam, Bien, Thuyen: The Ships through the Living Together Vietnamese Sea" [sic] is ongoing at the Korea National Maritime Museum until Jan. 31. 

"Viet Nam, Bien, Thuyen" translates to "Vietnam, sea, ships" in Vietnamese, and those facets of Vietnamese culture are what are on display. Visitors to the exhibition may experience and learn about Vietnam's maritime history and marine culture. Additionally, the country's natural environment and how it relates to its ship-building way of life is also outlined. 

The National Maritime Museum has put the exhibition into three sections that explore the nation's abundant forest resources, displays ships and dives into the Vietnamese relationship with ships and the sea, which spans millennia.
