  • Clear history and activities of the police, are on display. Easy to understand description, are on display along with the personal documents of actual activities during the war. Staff kindly and politely told to answer questions. Also, my city map and hear about where to go next, staff were very helpful.

  • Low temperature while it was raining, so enjoy in-room which is very convenient. The show together so close to Hoa Lo camps is recommended. Exhibition is less a sense what design posters, etc..

  • I was very impressed. It shows the history of the public safety and the police catch it all. Fire, smuggling, traffic, domestic violence, slavery. They have a rich history. However remember they will stop you, and either ticket you or take a fine payment from you. Your choice.
  • Small museum but very very interesting. A nice place. One of my favorite museums in Hanoi.
  • Excellent, well-kept museum with genuinely friendly staff. The exhibits were informative (though obviously one-sided as is typical in Vietnam) and there is plenty to see and read. We stayed for about an hour. Entry is free.
  • Very well put together and interesting history of Hanoi policemen. Also free!
  • Best free museum in Hanoi. Enjoyed the counter intelligence section and the confiscated weapons.
