This place is just Ok and for 2 entire bucks worthwhile. On the plus is the MIG 21 and a few great Russian tanks and the BONUS SAM missile. Saigon's museum is way way better.Period. Chriswakeford.com

The museum cost about 40,000 VND to get in. The best part is seeing a few Vietnam war relics outside. Huey & Chinook choppers couple APC's, US Skyraiders and a few Russian built Migs and Anti aircraft middle launchers. Inside is mostly propaganda stuff about...More

The museum is spread out over several buildings in the Old Quarter with the outdoor Citadel and military equipment as its focal point. Surprised by the towering sculpture of wreckage (mostly American jets) which is very thought provoking to say the least. If you like...More
