“That is true Vietnamese air force”

Vietnamese Air Force Museum
Ranked #70 of 285 things to do in Hanoi
More attraction details
Attraction details
Owner description: This museum costs about $10 U.S. round trip there and back from the Old Quarter and is located on the southern outskirts of the city. It's run by the Vietnamese military. Inside is a front section of a jet fighter where one can climb in and have a friend take his photo. Outside are numerous pieces of military equipment. There's an abundance of MIGs, helicopters, army trucks, radar, artillery pieces, tanks, etc. For someone who enjoys military memorabilia, this is the place for them. Much of the equipment was given to the Vietnamese by the USSR and one piece even came to them from the Germans by way of the Soviets. One of the pieces is a huge helicopter in back. There's also the wreckage of an American jet aircraft from a carrier. I thought the Army Museum had a lot of military equipment in it but this beats that one by a long shot.

That is nice to see the great force of Vietnam in the war and the victory of evidence.
But when you traveling from central of Hanoi old quarter is a bit far away - it is more that 10 kilometers from old town.

The (cheap) 20 min taxi ride from the old quarter is worth the crazy street driving experience in itself. Once there its a surreal experience to imagine the action these machines have faced yet its so quiet there despite the traffic outside the gates. Once inside the museum there's lots of memorabilia from shot down US planes and pilots.

Hi,

Worth an hour or so and a casual wander around the grounds on a nice day. On display are the various helicopters,airplanes, mobile radar units and other artillery used by the North Vietnamese in the war with the USA.

This shows them to be a bit more sophisticated in their weaponry that I previously believed and they were not just a bunch of rag tag nationalists,they had an air force and were an organised fighting nation.

Most of attractions on a level surface in the grounds. I sneaked in by paying the guard because it was lunchtime so I can't comment on what was in the large building as it was closed for lunch!

It was quiet and I was the only visitor.

It was supposed to be open and it looked open but the guards wouldn't let me in. My father's a pilot and I was looking forward to my first look at soviet warplanes. I still got a good look at them through the fence and a lot if photos. Some shot-down american planes too.
