    Nice architecture but not much here
    Beautiful building, with plenty of people doing photo shoots inside. There isn't too much inside the museum, however. Fairly hot inside, so be prepared for that. There are some nice exhibits but just due to the smaller size of this museum, it shouldn't take more than an hour or two to slowly walk through and see everything.

    Interesting to visit but not a must-go
    A dated museum with interesting artwork. It can get quite hot and stuffy in here due to only having a few air-conditioned rooms. There are also quite a few popular picture spots. I would recommend spending an hour here but its not a must-go in HCM.

    My best museum experince.
    This was my best museum experience in HCMC, I spent more than 2 hours there and if I had the time would have gone back for more. It covered every period of time in detail and I learnt so much about Ha Noi. Be sure to go downstairs to the shelter.

Hi Chi Ming city is a unique place. The energy of the burgeoning economy touches every aspect of the daily life. Parks serves as outdoor gyms, social gatherings places and ceremonial Tai Chi ceremonies. The fresh street food is healthy and delicious. I loved the Pho soup!

Amidst ancient traditions, nationalistic murals and the shadow of a horrible war that torn the country to shreds the spirit of a new Vietnam is contagious and energizing.

A visit to the hospital war museum is a must because it will help you understand how this country has focused on healing the deep wounds of atrocities committed only decades ago. It will be an emotional but necessary visit that will validate that hope and healing can and is indeed possible.

Very disappointed with our visit to this museum.
The building itself is beautiful with interesting architecture. However it needs some repair to bring it up to museum standard. It is very hot inside with no air conditioning and therefore our visit was very uncomfortable.
The artefacts are poorly displayed with little explanation.
Would not recommend as a tourist attraction.

Really everyone is going to the War Remnants Museum, they mostly arrive here by mistake. Besides the Huey helicopter ane the fighter jest outside, nothing interesting to see. Boring pottery and old era suing machines.

Go early if you want to avoid queues. Then look out for Hanoi Free tour guides. It's free and highly recommended . We had Ngat our tour guide who spoke English fluently. She was patient and shared insights to Uncle Ho. She made the whole experience great.

There's not much to see here to be honest. I wouldn't suggest making a special trip just to go here. It's pretty hot (no AC) and the signage isn't great in English. Go to the art museum instead!

Ho Chi Minh City, from air-port to district 1 is full of Museum and Place which have lots of story behind.
You can just try to walk down the street to have a better view from the housing, restaurants and shops which matching side by side. There are all very eye catching and you will want to take a picture down with your camera.

Foods are all very delicious and you won't regret to eat them all. I still want to fly back to have the deep fried meat ball, fried squid, seafood and beef noodles.

People there are nice and sweet, especially the girls around. ^^,
Transport is very easy and you can take a taxi or a ride on the motorbike to go to the place you want to go.

In ho chi minh city, there are also lots of hotels and night club with karaoke. As we know Vietnam people loves to sing and to enjoy they're life with friends.

So don't miss out and try your run away plan. To travel this lovely and nice country for holiday.

Happy shopping and eating..

See you soon Vietnam.

The Museum of Ho Chi Minh City is a definite must to visit. I am not a fan of museums but I was pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed it. My 19 year old son sure did.

From military armored trucks, tanks, planes to beautifully restored cars, history of the trade in Vietnam to the storyline of their costumes for weddings from different eras.

The museum might be slightly under maintained but it added character to it. The gardens are clean and upkept.

I highly recommended it to solo travellers, family with teenage kids and history lovers.
