Admire an impressive collection of war trophies at Vietnam Military History Museum, featuring the wreckage of the giant B52 Stratofortress downed during the US Christmas bombing of 1972. Spanning 12.8 ha (31.6 ac) in central Hanoi, the museum has a large open-air exhibit boasting an F-111 Aardvark, an A-1 Skyraider, an A-37 Dragonfly, and a Bell UH-1 Iroquios helicopter, as well as a Soviet MiG-21, an S-75 Dvina SAMs and a T54 tank. A huge number of artillery pieces and armored vehicles will make you understand the full scale and logistics of the notoriously modern war, which claimed more than one million lives. Artifacts on display inside the museum tell the gruesome and shocking story of wars waged on Vietnamese territory since ancient times. Indeed, lying at the heart of modern Vietnamese identity, the art of war has been detailed in great detail here.
