Mostly photos of Ho Chi. Be prepared to do a lot of reading. The grounds are quiet and provide a lovely view of the river.

It's nice but I prefer by large the undepedence museum. A nice museum to do on a free afternoon. Cheaper than the palace with a 30000 entry fee.

With so many other museums being pushed to the fore we almost didn't bother but given the super cheap tickets we nipped in for a quick look and stayed a while. Nice to see different elements explored and not just the war - so industrialization,...More

This appears to be a lesser visited museum, however if you have time I would say it’s worth popping in to (30k Dong you big spender), and it’s in town just behind City Hall. The building itself is one of the main attractions, built by...More

We went with our kids, 18 and 16, and they enjoyed the history of Vietnam. There are some interesting vehicles out the back in the garden as well as some aircraft in the front garden. A strange mix of artifacts but overall very enjoyable and...More

The collection is quite versatile but also a mix of things that aren't really related. The building is pretty in a sort of colonial style.
