    Wonderful place just to walk around and shop. Do not miss the great street food. A wonderful experience.

    Interesting part of Hanoi history. We had a tour guide, so we were told the full story of how it was built and by who in four stages.
    Along with the education history of Vietnam.

    This place really surprised me - not just the main museum, but around the back they had examples of the different types of traditional houses, etc., which was very interesting and fun. Highly recommend!

    There are several floors (5 I think!) separated into themes which cover lots of topics from marriage, war-participation , traditions and future.

    Everything is well presented and in many languages.

    The displays are well designed and the story flows very well.

    There is a short film (maybe 10 min) which was made just before covid changed the city - it talks about the sacrifices ladies from the villages make, to come to the city, to help provide for their families and send their children to school - they do such an amazing job and always with a smile but knowing their struggles reminds us all to be kind.

    Take the time to explore this museum - it's well worth it!

    This gives a very good history of Vietnam's fight for independence. The prison was originally built by the French and used to imprison Vietnamese "freedom fighters". The first part of the tour focuses on this part of Vietnam's history.

    The 2nd part showcases the experiences of POWs during the Vietnam War. The contrast is quite interesting in that it tries to portray through photos and descriptions a place where POWs were treated well - this is propaganda and does not marry with the first hand accounts of the men who were held here.
    Hence I would say that you need to go with this in mind although I wouldn't go so far as to say it makes the whole experience irrelevant.

    As others have commented, you do not need a headset. I had one and my husband did not and yet we both came away with the same information.

    It started to get busy while we were there so in the height of the tourist season, I imagine this could make the experience a little frustrating as there isn't much room to move around. So perhaps get there as early as possible.

    What does hit you - as history and present times show us time and again - is how cruel and inhumane human beings can be to each other. In some places the cruelty and resilience of the prisoners moved me to tears.

    Yup...the Opera House is very like the Paris Opera House (just smaller!) for one second you simply believe that you're in Paris. It's a lovely structure which, fortunately, is spared all of the communist propaganda of festoon & written notices on its leading so you are able to benefit from the lines of the structure of the structure.

    Although only open now Saturday & Sunday. It is a very impressive building built originally by the French. But now only approximately 10 % of the population are Catholic.

    Very interesting visit to see the preserved body of the revered leader of Vietnam.
    Strict control and run by the military. No loitering or talking photos inside the chamber.
    Cannot take photos inside. But outside of the building & gardens ok

    Very nice experience visiting this the oldest Pagoda in Hanoi.
    Quiet and peaceful located next to the West Lake. No admission charge but interesting to see the whole area with great photo opportunities.
    Luckily we had an English speaking tour guide, so we had lots of history and meanings about the site.

    Spent a great morning here. Unsurprisingly much of the focus is upon the French and American conflicts. I can't imagine that there's collection anywhere else in the world of US helicopters, planes, and other military vehicles to rival the one that the museum has

    Not quite as spectacular as the Citadel in Hue but definitely worth a visit. You are given a map at the ticket office with a suggested route, which is worth following, as you could otherwise miss so much. Very interesting to see the Command Headquarters and bunkers from the war, with good original exhibit. We spent a good couple of hours wandering around as there is quite a lot to see.

    This is worth seeing and visiting while on your trip. The city is different and the people are different along with the great history of the times. Great history.
