Need a good understanding of Vietnamese history before you go

It was interesting, but I have to agree with other reviewers; If you don't have a basic understanding of recent Vietnamese history this would be difficult to follow. There are no... read more

This is a rather dull museum, mostly into Communist propaganda. The exhibits are divided into numerous rooms, with no real logic - they are just there. WI-FI is partially available in the museum. The ticket is less than 2USD and also includes entrance to the nearby revolution museum. An hour is all you need for those two museums, but feel... More

It was interesting, but I have to agree with other reviewers; If you don't have a basic understanding of recent Vietnamese history this would be difficult to follow. There are no informations boards to explain it all. And definitely don't take children - they would be bored stiff!

An interesting place to learn about Vietnam's recent history. The place puts an emphasis on Vietnam's feelings and suffer. In addition, it shows the various achievements they had such as the hydropower plant.

If you don't know much about the revolution to begin with, the museum is not engaging at all. It doesn't really talk you through the history, it feels more like just a bunch of artefacts and pictures clumped together on display with some information. The information is often not contextualized enough so it can be confusing what you're really looking... More

You can get a lot of information about Vietnam history. How hard they had to fight for their freedom. Like the other museums in Hanoi, entrance was low priced compared with the museums in Europe.

There is a way to tell the story of the Vietnamese experience of the long struggle against France and America. This is not it. Rows of static photographs, posters, ids, lists of international supporters of struggle etc. It may work for local audience who already know the story but not for international audience. If you have been to Ha Loi... More

I'm disappointed with some other reviewers who all but dismissed this as pure propaganda. Which historical source is not skewed towards a certain point of view? I see this museum as an opportunity for foreigners to obtain the point of view from the Vietnamese people, or at least the Vietnamese government. Yes, words like "puppet president" and "liberated" are obviously... More
