“Wonderful display of military history!”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

This is the best museum I've visited so far. Ok, I'm biased here as I have a strong interest in the Vietnam war. But overall there are a lot of interested collections and even a video showing the history of the French occupation in the 1950s.

Reviewed May 17, 2013

Fascinating, particularly to see the other side of the American war from the Vietnamese point of view. For military history buffs, a must see!

“Selective History”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

Interesting to see things from another perspective. Check opening times as the museum closes for lunch but there is a very good café on site to pass the time.
