Unfortunately many tables and explanations are in vietnamese only. It would help, if you would be guided with some kind of visual elements through the museum.

Great value at just 40,000 dong pp. Loads to see and read. Covering centuries of war history! Really enjoy the Vietnamese take on their history. Everything is positive, great propaganda! Makes a difference from the American war films in particular!

Remember all the history in Vietnam is based in their views. Very interesting to see the “other side of the story”. Multiple building filled with relics and guns.

Went into this museum not expecting much, but it was actually great to walk around and look at the exhibits. There are tanks, planes and the wreckage of a B52 which all look amazing. You are also able to climb the one flagged tower, but...More

It's astounding how little the young adults in Vietnam are familiar with the war that ravaged the homeland of theirs for a lot of years. This museum will exactly enlighten them, though it does a very great job of displaying the hardware and equipment applied...More
