Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

So i arrived at 12 on Friday, only to realise the museum closes from 11h30 to 13h30. Waiting dutifully until 13h30, walking around the outside of the museum, admiring the captured hardware and war machines and the amazing brass plaques and panels showing the liberation of the city.

At 13h30 I wait for the opening - nothing. Turns out from the nice guy in the near but trinket kiosk that the museum is "closed until further notice".

I would suggest a walk around the outside to see the "liberation architecture" and war machines on your way to the National Museum or Zoo - just around the corner.

I think the city make more money running the place as a wedding venue, as there are two halls at the back that were doing brisk trade - may be the SAM 7 misile looks good in wedding photos?

We did not enter the museum as it is closed at the weekends and we stumbled upon it by accident. However there is an impressive collection of vehicles, guns and aircraft from the war which is free to view and well worth the visit.

This Museum looks at the Ho Chi Minh's forces and how the War was won. Great artefacts from the War in the grounds of the museum including a F5 fighter aircraft as was used by Air Force master spy Nguyen Thanh Trung that attacked the South Vietnamese presidential palace to the amazement of all as it was their own aircraft. A hero of Uncle Ho's.

A tank identical to that which broke into the presidential palace to end the war is also on display to the right as you enter the main gate.

Murals in bronze commemorate the deeds of the Army, Air Force and Navy and of women's contribution to the War.

Remnants of shot down US aircraft litter the display to remind all who won the war. Excellent presentation but limited English. Well worth a visit. Closed on Sundays unlike most museums. Free entry.

Largely in Vietnamese, and appeared to be an older museum built before the current ones. I arrived 90 minutes after afternoon opening and was the first guest (& only). Showed loads of information and stats, be great in knew the language. Lots of hand draw military plans from the time showing where the planned strikes where going to take place etc. Lots of cool (but old) models of particular battles and for the devoted personal items of generals etc.

A bit dated but worth the D10,000 (50c) it cost to get in.

In the forecourt was the famous tank that smashed through the gates of the independence palace in 1975, thus ending the war.

This museum concentrates on the not so recent war with the Americans. Many pictures are not for the squeamish and there are a lot of them.
Captured American tanks, guns, bombs and aircraft are on display outside and there are three floors of display on the inside, and all in the centre of town.
For those with an interest, it is worth seeing

It's a good place for Vietnamese students to learn history. However, I think it's not for tourists because it's quite boring with too much information without well selected and organized. Outside there are some air-craft and tank models.
