I am not one for many museums but as a nurse I was intrigued to see what this place was all about so my husband and I got a taxi one afternoon on a whistle stop tour of HCM. The guide was, as all Vietnamese guides were on our trip, exceptionally sweet natured and knowledgable about ancient medicine. The building is beautiful and you may see what I put it in inverted commas when you arrive there...I hope I'm not being an idiot!
I don't want to spoil it by giving too much detail but it's well worth the meagre entrance fee if you fancy a change from the usual tourist spots (this one wasnt on our hotel map or the good old lonely planet). I would recommend getting a taxi there as it can e tricky enough to find.
