I was expecting to see a bit more planes, tanks, weapons and have more explanations in English. It is crowded but smallish, with not that much to see, fine for a quick visit.

This museum has joined with another just across the road, they are both now named Vietnam Nation Museum of History and it costs 80k to enter them both. This particular side of the museum was much more enjoyable than the other - very interesting!

I enjoyed this museum - its not very touristy and not as easy to follow as the Museum at the Ho Chi Minh mausoleum complex. (In fact if you want a more easily digestible narrative, go there instead). It's in a dusty old government building...More

Fascinating images and objects which piece together the history of Vietnam since the 19th Century. The images of men and women who have given their lives for Vietnam were most moving. I liked the additional exhibition based on writers and culture of creating a new...More

A must visit place for a person visiting Vietnam for the first time. Very interesting. It is more interesting for person who has some knowledge of the history of Vietnam. You come to know how great they had been to gain independence.

The museum shows remains from the post 1948 era. Descriptions are often limited if you can’t read Vietnamese (compared to the history museum eg). It is build from a Vietnamese point of view and I imagine Vietnamese people know a lot more about the wars...More

If you are looking for this museum, it has been combined with the History Museum. We learned a lot about the history of Vietnam since the mid 1800's, via photos and their descriptions. As other reviewers say, you must follow the room sequence, then you...More
