  • 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 »
  • I travelled here after seeing it on tripadvisor. In the big picture of things its very disappointing. I was expecting to see a museum with history about the B-52 over North Vietnam, but what I got was...  more »
  • There is a B-52 strato-fortress which crash landed and some guided missiles. Th door of the museum was closed in my face at 10.30am, although it was supposed to be open until 11.30am  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.
