The museum is full of war-crimes, atrocities committed by USA but I felt only one-sided view was emphasized against US although while talking to local citizens they appreciate USA more than other countries. I think the issues are Politically misguided.

As the name suggests a simple museum showing the timeline of Vietnam’s long and turbulent history. Worth a look, should take an hour or so. Its right next door to the HCMC Zoological and Botanical Gardens so join the two together and make half a day of it.

I've you're a regular visitor to museums, you shouldn't miss the History museum in either Saigon or Hanoi. Amongst others, there's a beautiful exhibit of striking Champa sculptures and jewellery. The museum gives one a good overview of Vietnamese history.
Walk in the zoo gardens before or after your visit to the museum (to make the most of it, you need at least 2 hours). Keep in mind that the museum is closed over the lunch hour.

This was a nice place to visit great old building with many floors and things to see. It was only 75cents to enter and does NOT close during the day.

It's a great way to learn all about the war history of Vietnam. All exhibits provide descriptive facts and information about the events which happened. A must-visit place if you visit Vietnam
