After visiting this museum, I could not figure out why it had such a high rating... if you look at the "excellent" reviews, you will see that each one has reviewed around 10 places only in Hanoi and gave them all 5 stars. These reviews...More

2-3 hours. The nice thing about the audio guide is you enter the number for the display you want to hear about. Two of the floors we listened to almost all of the audio guide the last floor we listened to maybe one or two.
