“Surprise find”

Vietnamese Air Force Museum
Ranked #77 of 289 things to do in Hanoi
More attraction details
Attraction details
Owner description: This museum costs about $10 U.S. round trip there and back from the Old Quarter and is located on the southern outskirts of the city. It's run by the Vietnamese military. Inside is a front section of a jet fighter where one can climb in and have a friend take his photo. Outside are numerous pieces of military equipment. There's an abundance of MIGs, helicopters, army trucks, radar, artillery pieces, tanks, etc. For someone who enjoys military memorabilia, this is the place for them. Much of the equipment was given to the Vietnamese by the USSR and one piece even came to them from the Germans by way of the Soviets. One of the pieces is a huge helicopter in back. There's also the wreckage of an American jet aircraft from a carrier. I thought the Army Museum had a lot of military equipment in it but this beats that one by a long shot.

Surprise find, if you are into the Vietnam war I would rank this place up with the main museum. Lots of planes etc. bit diff to get to as it is on the same road as the air force academy , get a taxi, it is at the very end of the road

Vietnamese showcasing their triumph over the Americans back in the 70's - it really gives you an overview of the scale of the country tribulations in search f their freedom.

My 10 year old could not get enough of airforce history while in Hanoi and so we made the trek out of the Old Quarter. there is a reason it is not on the "tourist trail". But if you love military planes, this is the right place.

Travelling with 2 real aviation enthusiasts this museum was a must do. They truely loved this place and somewhat I did as well. We were all charged to take our cameras in and majority of the museum was not in english. None the less it was a worthy visit.

That is nice to see the great force of Vietnam in the war and the victory of evidence.
But when you traveling from central of Hanoi old quarter is a bit far away - it is more that 10 kilometers from old town.
