This was an eye opening experience to see the perspective view of American involvement. Harsh realities but a absolute must see.

There are several buildings with various displays starting from 1000 years ago when the Vietnamese got rid of the Chinese. Of course i grew up watching the American Vietnam war on the news so i was interested in that period. Outside the... More

If you want to get a lesson in the military history of Vietnam then this is the place to go. From ancient times to the present - a broad overview will keep you occupied for a good few hours.
