“Jewel of Vietnamese history”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2013 via mobile

The Museum is quite interesting. It exhibits items of a big range of Vietnamese history. We particularly appreciated the section with the buddha collection. If you are really interested in the ancient history of Vietnam a local guide would be helpful.

“Beautiful Place to spend a lovely afternoon!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2013

A place that would bring you back to the French colonial era... where you would imagine yourself back in the early 19th century.. with a lot of Vietnam artifacts and antiques on displayed.
A lot of newly weds come here for that once in a lifetime photo shooting...Not surprising in view of the beautiful ambiance and architecture!

“Not a museum person but really enjoyed it.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

Normally museums don't do it for me but I have to say this well worth a visit. The displays on offer are very interesting and you are so close to the displays you really can get a great view. The artifacts and history also hold your attention. You get a true sense of vietnam's history.

“History”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

I believe in knowing as much as possible about the history of any country that I visit. Well! the place is a "History Museum". Learnt a lot about the history of Vietnam. Some things was sad but then you have to take your hat off for there perseverance through tough times.
