this place is ok to kill a bit of time while you are on the general tourist route. It is about the same standard as most tourist attractions in vietnam. That probably says enough, dont expect to be wowed.

A lot of past history, during the Vietnamese war, surrounded by huge war tanks. Ideal for photos and memory of the war.

Enjoyed visiting the Vietnam Military Museum to learn more about the horrific war and to see some of the wreckage which was dragged out of the sea. A little slanted review at times as some of the numbers did not stack up. Well worth seeing.
