Smallish but interesting museum.
Feb 2020
Good to get background on Vietnamese history, with exhibits on the various languages and ethnic groups and the constant struggle to assert their independence against successive invaders over the centuries - Chinese, Khmer, Thai, French etc.

Evolutionary History going back to the Bronze Age and continuing on.
Jan 2020
There is much here to captivate you if you are a history fan. Beginning in the Bronze Age, the museum's artifacts continue on into modern day Vietnam.

Our tour included a water puppetry show that was interesting and fun to see as well.

A Must visit museum if you are interested in history
Jan 2020
The cost of entry into the museum in 30,000 VND. I was amazed when I saw masterpieces from the Champa Kingdom with an amazingly beautiful sculpture of Lord Shiva with a moustache.

Really interesting museum
Jan 2020
Comprehensively covers early Palaeolithic period onwards. Maybe better than Hanoi but I can’t say as they had there early period sections closed when I was there.

Actually reopens at 1:00pm now, contrary to what it says on Google. The girl at the zoo/gardens booth even thought it was 1:30.

Good overview of Vietnam's history
Dec 2019
Good museum, quiet. Best to plan up to two hours to see it all. They are explanations in English. We fell like it gave us a fairly good overview of the history of Vietnam. Some parts could probably have been more detailed. Cheap entrance ticket.

MUST VISIT HERE TO HAVE GOOD UNDERSTANDING
Dec 2019 • Couples
I spent a few hours here and totally was engaged with the history of Vietnam. What a surprise to me to learn so much and realize what an old civilization that is present here.
So much great history to be learnt here. A must visit while you are in Saigon.
