The building needs some TLC but for only 40,000 for the ticket it was worth the time to take a look round. You can go down into the underground bunker - eerie!

Well worth a visit to understand Vietnam's past. Well set up with signage to explain the many rich historical artefacts. Do allocate time to be able to go through it at leisure.
