Visited this museum with my wife and we were very impressed. This is not a typical museum, and you can see a lot of Chinese ancient medicine. The old building are very beautiful and an interesting film is presented (in french). We were very impressed by the history of their medicine, from the beginning of time, how they used to extract it from the plants, what tool they’ve used and all other kind of remedies. You can also buy these remedies from a small shop at the end of the tour, if you are interested.

Beware when looking for the place that from the western end the street is Hoang Du Khuong but from the eastern side it is Hem 285 Cach Mang Thang Tam. In Oct 2013, entry fee=50,000 dong. The old and new architecture moulds beautifully. It is obvious that the museum has been restored with care. The guide was free and very engaging. There is a goodly list of artifacts.

I walked around 25 minutes out there from the inner center (map/smartphone is very useful). Loved the building with all those detailed and historic, wooden artworks. By the way, from the top I saw that the Temple of the Buddha's Relic (Xa Loi pagoda) is just around the corner. Easy to
combine...

We were in Saigon. Liked reviews of others who'd visited. Glad we got there by taxi. Very interesting collection in an amazingly designed building. Our female guide was very funny

Both of my parents and grand-parents really enjoyed this visit and the comments of the guide.
Rooms are very beautiful, in vietnamese style architecture.
Herbs, tools,etc are exposed and some are dated from the 1st or 2nd century !!

It is not far from Ben Than.
I definitely recommend it !
