Interesting slant on Vietnamese military history from the ancient past to present day.
There is actually an entrance fee of 30,000VND (less than a quid) However, if you are very tight, you can get in for nothing as there is a coffee shop adjacent with access from the road and no restriction on entering the museum campus. Once inside, your ticket is never checked. having been to the Hanoi Hilton earlier in the day' we paid our quid.
There are actually signs telling you not to climb on the exibits, but I suppose if you cant read english or Vietnamese then you might think you can run riot!
Very little info on the American war in this museum, most of the exhibits are from the French and Chinese conflicts, however all of the vehicles and planes are from the later war.
The Vietnamese are thin on details, exhibits just tell you what the thing is and sometimes who donated it or which glorious unit liberated it. Very little on the history of conflicts or any explanation of battles or time lines.
Worth an hour and the coffe was excellent. The museum has toilets too, which is a bonus.
