Free entry
Mar 2020
This museum wasn't on our itinerary but it was close to the hotel so decided to explore. Nice airy building and the lady at reception couldn't have been more helpful. With free entry it was somewhat a surprise that we were the only visitors during the 80 minutes or so that we were there. The exhibits were all labelled with English and French translations. The history of the Police Force in Vietnam was eye opening. The Force is relatively newly formed and initially brought together the internal security and paramilitary agencies into a single Force. The history of the agencies is also covered in the Museum. Well worth a visit if you are interested in such things

Nice museum

This museum is located near the prison (which is a very popular tourist attraction)
The museum talks about the development of Vietnamese police and it maybe boring to some, but worth to visit (the entry is free anyway)

It’s free..

Called in about 3.45pm on Friday and just started to explore the museum on the ground floor.. as others have put some political messages but an insight into the history of the police... sadly the lights started to get switched off around 4pm and I think it was a hint that it was a Friday 🤣 Poets day....

There are washrooms as well.

Great Museum for Freebies Hunters
Jun 2018 • Family
Located in the City Centre, This museum offered by the government free-of-charge. Yes, you read that right.

Here, they told you about the timeline of the Vietnamese police from the French era, the 'Murican Occupation, The Free (and Communist) Vietnam, and current era tools, missions, vehicles, etc.

The most insteresting part of the museum is an American identification letter, In several languages, including Indonesian (with old-style Dutch spelling) saying "I am a citizen of United States of America, if you help me... blablabla... my nation will grant you a prize."

Best time to visit the museum are 1-2 hours before closing on the weekdays. That time, no one is present, It feels a little bit creepy, but at least you can throughly read and immerse yourself back to the past.
