The freestanding museum is placed in the midst of an artificial park landscape with water basins and large areas for outdoor exhibits, monuments and traditional villages in the style of old Hanoi. Within the square building, a central circular atrium links an entrance level with the three exhibition levels. These are arranged as terraces projecting further outwards on each higher floor, forming an inverted pyramid. The topmost floor is the largest, at 92.4m square and the floor areas decrease downwards, with the square on the ground floor measuring 42m square. The upwardly projecting storys effect in each of the layers below a shading, which is part of the energy efficiency concept. While the interior will be protected from direct sunlight, also a protective effect is created for the exhibits. For visitors, the effect is that, looking out, they seem to be floating over the landscape. Visitors to the museum reach the upper levels via a spiral ramp.
