  • I was bitten by two dogs who stay in the grounds of the museum. Luckily I was wearing jeans and their bites didn't pierce the skin. A Vietnamese woman was also bitten when I was there, and I saw the d...  more »
  • Dakan as suddenly. Admission is free, so there's no guards at the entrance, only in intact. At the entrance, the mentioned days, etc.. B52 bombers (except for lunch, except Monday and Friday) are seen in close. So is walking distance from Ho Chi Minh's mausoleum is seen also together with everybody.

  • Small, free museum spread out over a building (no airconditioning) with information panels and artifacts like weapons, and an outside area with the wreckage of a B52 bomber that was shot down over Hanoi as well as two surface to air missiles, some anti-aircraft guns, flak and a fighter jet. Informative and worth seeing. A visit will take you somewhere between 30-45 minutes. I came right after the lunch break and me and another tourist were the only ones here. Observe the lunch break when planning a visit; they are closed during lunch. They museum has restrooms but they are not in te exhibit building itself but somewhat hidden; when you walk out of the building, they are in the building to your left side. You will have to walk close to see the signs.
  • Really cool place. Unfortunately when we went it was closed, but you could still see all the planes and anti aircraft guns. Hope to go back when its open!
  • Some interesting and reasonably well preserved artefacts. Seeing the hulking scale of a mangled B-52 Stratofortress [assumedly assembled from multiple downed aircraft] is pretty impressive. Inside, a succinct recent history of conflict in Vietnam. Free entrance.
  • Also closed when I arrived ill upload a picture of opening times. Google maps told me the entrance was at the back, its not, its on the main street. I spent 20 minutes walking through winding back alleys. After waiting a few minutes they opened the gates...take that america.
  • Not very impressive. If you like seeing a crashed B52 it's cool. Was closed when I got there but could still walk inside the Gate.
