It is a cheap taxi ride 70-100vnd each way from district 1 to the museum. The guide was fantastic and it is worth seeing the traditional Vietnamese house. It takes about 45 minutes incl 15 minute video. You receive some artichoke tea at the end (good for liver detox...allegedly). It worth a visit.

An interesting collection & beautiful building. The tour was very informative. Our only wish would be that the staff would educate themselves about the harm which some age-old superstitions have done under the guise of medicing (rhino horn, etc). Still, a unique experience offered by FITO pharma.

50,000d per ticket is quite pricey in comparison with other museums in HCMC. However, for me it's worth the visit. They have hundreds of objects to see. Also the architecture of the building (inside) is very beautiful and authentic.

The museum offers its own guides. And they are very knowledgeable and willing to answer any question of you. A nice museum to see in Saigon
