Visiting this museum was one of the highlights of my trip to Hanoi. A great concept which has been executed in an excellent manner.
The layout is easy to follow, with different topics on each floor. The plaques of information next to each exhibit had the right amount of detail to hold my interest. There are a number of very moving displays, such as the wall with the Heroic mothers of Vietnam.
One particular plaque reminds that "they are only at the beginning of their history".
Everything is beautifully presented, and visiting here is a must-do in Hanoi.
Completed my visit with a Vietnamese coffee at a coffee shop in the grounds of the museum.
