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

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
