Given the cultural importance of the Vietnam war for Americans, and the significant impact it had on Vietnam, I expected to learn more about the war, how it unfolded and progressed, and the impact it had on the country. It did not provide much of...More

The museum is very big. It takes you at least 2 hours to just go through all the rooms of the museum. the artifacts displayed here are real and preserved from the war.

Includes a lot of history and is an interesting place to. Not a far walk from Hoan Kiem at all so I recommend that then stopping for a feast at Bun Bo Nam Bo on the way back :)

The museum is a selection of structures, each dedicated to a different element of the different conflicts, a few going back thousands of years. An interesting and fascinating look at the martial historical past of Vietnam.

This museum has some interesting displays and artifacts. It is nothing too unusual or unexpected. Not a bad way to spend an hour or so.

A worthwhile visit at a reasonable price about £1 each person. Good to see planes and tanks and other exhibits that were involved in conflicts.

Fascinating. For some amount the inside the museum is missing exhibits other than pictures. Outside holds far more physical assets. Planes helicopters, etc. and an actual collage of aircraft wreckage. Really excellent and rather moving to consider the human misery which must have happened here

This museum features both historical information exhibits and military equipment, mostly American aircraft captured during the Vietnam War. The information panels highlight not only the Vietnam War, but other episodes of warfare in Vietnam's history going back centuries. Most signs are captioned in English in...More

We did it on our own and we're pretty relaxed when we aren't with a tour group. (We were on a tour but stayed 4 extra days in Hanoi to do things on our own). 3 hours should be enough for all 3 things. I find when you are on... More
