We visited the museum the day after touring Cu Chi Tunnels. The 2 places are a must visit if you are a history enthusiast. I read every exhibit except on the highest floor because our group were ready to leave.

Two hours is ample time to view, we were there a few days ago and wandered around at our leisure. We visited here before heading to the palace which opens at 1pm. Enjoy.
