Colossal waste of time
Dec 2019
I gave it a “2” simply because there was some organization to the “museum” or reasonable facsimile thereof. It does have a B52 - in pieces - shot down during the war. There is no one around to explain anything and the English write up on displays extol the virtues of the Vietnamese and the horrors of the Americans. The victors get to write their own history. You have to go out of your way to get to this place but we recommend not going out of your way.

Interesting small museum
Jul 2019
There's not that much of interest here apart from the reconstructed B52. It's impressive how huge these planes are, and how intimidating they must have been to Vietnamese civilians. Not too much to see inside the museum, but the outside is quite good.

I love history, so I was super disappointed. Walked in, no one there, no staff. Alls it was was pictures and items with one sentence description, just one. No paragraphs to be found in order to tell a story and no direction. No air conditioning either. A huge waste of time. Yeah there is an old b52 sitting out front but that's it.

Worth a Visit EVEN While Under Renovation
Apr 2019 • Solo
Yes, this museum is currently being renovated. There was no one around to ask when it will reopen. However, I'm still saying that this is a "very good" attraction because visitors still have free access to the outdoor exhibits. There, you'll find the footprint of a B52 bomber essentially reassembled using the wreckage of the 16 bombers shot down during the 1972 US Operation Linebacker II. It's pretty powerful to see both the size of the aircraft and also the twisted and burned wreckage. You'll also get to see a MIG-21 and a bunch of anti-aircraft artillery and missiles including two SA-2s.

Totally worth a visit even while the museum is closed.

Museum closed for renovation
Mar 2019 • Solo
I was brought here by a chap who stopped his motor bike for me and offered to take me around some of the main tourist sights. I went to go into the museum but it was clearly in the state of renovation and I was told it was closed. This then left a few guns and missiles to see but the visually attractive reassembled remains of a B52 shot down over Hanoi in 1972 was worth viewing.

interesting museum
Nov 2018
A fairly basic museum with the usual memorabilia inside - really interesting anti aircraft guns/missiles in the front courtyard, plus pieces of downed B52's. It makes a good adjunct to the B52 in the lake which is a short walk away.

Memorial to a heroic victory
Aug 2018
It is encouraging to see how the workers and peasants of such a small country, motivated by a sense of justice, managed to defeat history's largest imperial power (and its puppet regime in the south) with its B-52s and advanced weaponry. The support of the first country to free itself from capitalism, the USSR, was crucial, as testified by the Russian-language equipment displayed in the museum, but the willingness to sacrifice one's life for future generations was clearly paramount. Definitely a must-see.

A little piece of history bunched up in one place. Makes you grateful to be American and know that our troops were putting their life on the line.

Memorabilia from the Great Vietnam War
Oct 2018 • Couples
We grew up hearing a lot about the Vietnam War. It was interesting to see the salvaged American planes and Tanks the vietcongs captured during the war. Inside there are a number of photographs explaining the genesis of Vietnam war and in short the history of Vietnam from the French Colony to the unified present day Vietnam. Worth a visit.
