  • The Museum dates from the 1960s and remained in the State. Source of important information for people interested in the history of the country.

  • Very disappointing. Worst musuem I have been to. I was hoping to learn something about the revolution of Vietnam. But it turns of that the museum just put random items with descriptions like 'gun used by ..' or 'typewriter 1950', etc. Moreover, the air conditions are not working. It feels like an oven inside. If you already had Vietnamese history background, then this may be interesting to you. Otherwise, it's just a collection of old items.
  • it was established in August 1959 in a two-storey building, formerly used by the Trade Department of Vietnam. It was redesigned into 30 galleries and as of 2008 contains in excess of 40,000 historical exhibits. Topics covered was notably are the National liberation movements of the Vietnamese against French troops before the Vietnamese Communist Party was established in the period 1858–1930, the National independence struggle of the Vietnamese under the leadership of the Communist Party from 1930–1975 and then the social construction of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam from 1976–1994.
  • Kind of boring but worth a look if you're close
  • for who want to know about vietnamese revolution
  • Very interesting! Lots of information, but if you know nothing you could feel a little lost. So read some history before you go! Feed your head!
