  • You can see up close plane was ever actually used in war. Tourism also is a little away from the tourist centre, within walking distance from Ho Chi Minh mausoleum and Temple 1, so is recommended. Not interested so much as weapons of war, but still power is real.

  • Just not to be missed if you want to feel the size of a B52 outdoor it indoor exhibit Biggie not readers alone hotel staff nor forgotten places like Ho Chi Minh's mausoleum and set-friendly?

  • A little bit of a chaotic layout, but worth a visit. We went at 12:30 and it was closed, but the gate was unlocked for us by a helpful local.  more »

  • 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.
