This is not so much a museum as a record of Vietnams recent history mostly depicted in gold picture frames. Each of the four areas are given to a period but concentrate on victories and who led them. One gallery is dedicated to the glorious communist success in growing GDP since the 60s with frame after frame of annual print... More

I was expecting a lot from this museum I was eager and ready to learn. I was not satisfied. It would be advantageous to get a guide as I kind of just felt like I was walking through aimlessly kind of reading the English signs and not really understanding anything else.

Went here expecting the usual somewhat rundown southeast Asian museums I seem to end up at, ended up finding a nicely built and well maintained museum. Very interesting look at Ho Chi Minh and others he worked with. A lot of art installations. Someone recommended a guide or we would miss a lot of the meaning, we opted out and... More

It is a nice building but the interior is a bit old. They need to keep it clean and refurbished a bit. Not much things to see but it's good to visit.

I thought I'd pop in after going to the Mausoleum but I don't think it was worth it. It's a lovely building but I think they suffer from having too much space, as there's quite a lot of items that aren't particularly interesting or significant, and random displays like oversized fruit. I think the museum would be much improved if... More

Fantastic museum with an eclectic collection including influences from Russia, France and Spain. Fascinating relics from Ho Chi Minh's life. Ties in very well with a visit to Ho Chi Minh's Mausoleum. Children were admitted half price.
