The Memorial House is located on the main road, 300m away from the sea  (high water level). It was originally the headquarters of the Party Committee - Administrative Committee of Co To commune, where Uncle Ho met with Co To cadres to advise on some of the Party's policies and guidelines and send the Party and the Government's wishes for the ethnic groups of the Northeast region of the country. The relic was built in a square walled campus of 2,209 m², 47m side. The path from the entrance to the memorial house is paved with red brick. The campus features chessboard squares planted with flowers and trees.

In the middle compartment, there is a painting by painter Van Giao depicting the day when Uncle Ho visited the island, and officers, soldiers, people and children of different ethnic groups gathered to welcome him. The two sides of the interconnected compartment on the right display the artifacts during his visit to the island. There is a simple bed where Uncle Ho took a nap at noon on May 9, 1961, on the bed are white sheets and a pillow, next to it is a two-chamber cabinet made of chestnut wood, 2m high and 1.2m wide, used to store Uncle Ho’s belongings.

The two interconnected compartments on the left display the economic, political and military achievements of the people on the island before and after the district's establishment, including photos and supporting scientific documents. To the left of the memorial house is a 5-compartment house including a kitchen, renovated in 1975 for welcoming guests and serving as a working and living place of the management board in the old days.
