  • Had tanks, helicopters and the Viet Nam war era weapons remain weapons of the former dynasty, half of the exhibit is a centerpiece is a wreckage of downed B52

  • We spent 1.5 hours at the Museum, where we saw a lot of planes and helicopters, as the Vietnamese used during the Viet Nam war, how many sf in particular aircraft was hijacked from the Americans. In addition, we saw lots of weapons, the historical utensils, uniforms, photographs, tanks and, not least, one could also come up in "flag tower", located right next to the Museum. Definitely an experience!

  • A memorable place that gets the mind to run back to the Viet Nam war's end, where the U.S. had to leave pretty much stock i.f.m. their withdrawal. Worth to visit must pay for ticket-cheap!
