  • no big thing, this museum. but entrance is free, and during the heat at noon, it is a cool place to hide away. therefore still worth the visit.  more »
  • A great walk through time in Vietnam. Well put together and ordered to give visitors a good understanding of the history of Vietnam, albeit maybe a little controversial in later events!  more »
  • Small museum with quite a decent number of displays. Most interest items should have better note and explanation.
  • I think this is one of good places for visitor visit.
