    You have to see this part of vietnam to understand how Vietnamese is winner in war, debate France, American, and China. It is a really good view from the people during the vietnam war and not only the "American" side of the story.

    You don't need to know anything about traditional medicine to appreciate the rare collections of pictures and artefacts stored in this old town house as an impromptu private museum. Yes, it is owed by a herb company but they are very cool and unobtrusive about it, a real must when in HCMC, loved it !

    Fun place to spend a couple of hours. Lots of fun and laughs to be had at each stop along the way. Pay attention to the directions for each stop on the floor for the best results.

    Yes, had visited here looking at many different nice and good painted arts about Vietnam civil war time and other arts but may be a problem for old elderly and disable people to visit because there was no lift to goes to upper floors.

    "The Factory" Contemporary Arts Center in Saigon's newly posh Thao Dien district inside one of the bigger meanders of Saigon river, has opened in 2016 and is apparently going strong since, with great catalogues available

    Unfortunately the gallery is closed and will not open soon i guess. There is a construction side. I hope it will return some day because the art is so beautiful!

    This wasn’t bad, I wouldn’t say it’s a must do as the place is really old & neglected. We thought we can use some aircon time but there was none so be ready for a hot & humid museum visit. There are some old items worth showing the kids, and overall it took is less than an hour to visit the place.

    This is in a rather run down building as is the museum itself. There are some interesting aspects but I would not put this one high on my list of things to do in Ho Chi Minh city.

    I had read just a couple of reviews about this Ao Dai museum located about 23 kms outside Saigon in Long Phuoc District 9. It truly is worth a visit and can be reached by local means using the No. 88 bus departing from Ben Thanh Bus Station (NOT Ben Thanh Market). Actually we went to the market instead of the bus station (they are near but not that near) & nearly gave up but happened to see a No 88 & waved it down & it stopped (well, slowed down) & we hopped on. For 6,000 VND we travelled 23 kms on a journey of 1.1/2 hours through not very exciting districts until crossing the last bridge to reach lush countryside. The Museum really is lovely and very peaceful. We had called earlier to ask for an English-speaking guide. The tour, at a gentle pace, lasted just over an hour, then we wandered on our own, enjoying the lake and gardens. Miss France arrived for a photoshoot so the venue wasn't as unknown as it first seemed. The "stop" for the No. 88 is on the "main" road about 300 metres from the Museum which is located up a small dirt road. Buses are frequent around every 12 mins. Enjoy!

    This is a very interesting museum from a number of perspectives. The various floors hold differing themes. The history and evolution of the native dress is immensely interesting. Once again, the floor dealing with the conflict is incredibly touching and deeply saddening.

    In the pedestrian street, not the museum but the exhibition. I have seen a real podium first time in my life. It was exciting. Numbered chairs, live music, decorative walls, costumes around... I was alone in the hall and could not stop myself pretending as if I am the fashion model!

    I am so glad I was able to visit this wonderful gallery. It is not big but an amazing and well appointed space for the display of exciting works by Vietnamese artists.

    The museum is in a surprisingly nice garden and the whole exhibition is surprisingly good. Lot of info about the 19th and 20th century's France-Vietnam relations, colonial prisons, old photos of Saigon and Vietnamese countryside, etc.

    The museum has a very good restaurant, with Minestrone, beef Wellington and croque Madame on the menu. I don't know if they really have all these food but the passion fruit juice and the orange-carrott juice were very good.

    Small but important detail, especially for women: the restaurant's toilet is very good, much better than the museum's - has toilet paper, soap, water. If you need to use the restroom, go to the restaurant.
    Restaurant has AC and good WiFi.
