The museum is smaller than expected and can be visited in under an hour. The only interesting displays are the aircraft and tanks outside. If you intend visiting the excellent War Remnants museum in HCM City, a visit to this museum could be skipped.

The museum provides a brief overview of the war through old equipment and poorly written informative signs. The real winner here is outside where there are planes, tanks and missiles on display, some of which you can climb on!

The Vietnam military history museum gives one an overall view of Vietnamese history particularly from the militaristic angle. There are a series of pictures, maps and artefacts depicting the various military campaigns over the ages.
