  • This free Museum, which has few visitors, gives a very good idea of the life of women due South Viet Nam. The stories of the suffering of women during the Viet Nam war are not the only subject of the Museum, but they are particularly impressive and touching.

  • The Museum went after the reunification Palace. I went from a guard who "screwed! "And said with a smile. Wall guard stations and renovation, when I had to say and do not know what finished. So no commentary but became the only museum garden tour is a gold statue of the woman in the middle of the garden nipple slip out and ended at.

  • This museum is fantastic. It's a must see if you are interested in history and Woman's movement. It's free, and I was only one of two people there at the time. Very interesting and important photograp...  more »

  • The museum is free to enter. Probably explains why the facility's interior was very hot, not well ventilated. The collection is ok; quite educational and telling of the role and contribution of the Vietnamese women in winning the war. I personally thought the collection as a whole lacked coherence in presentation.
  • This is a free museum. Few people visit here. Taxi driver do not know where this is. There are many pictures about vietname woman and their stories, Ao-dais. If you want to saigon zoo, Visit here. It is a near. No need to visit only for here. It will be waisting a time.
  • I don't not understand why this place has >4* ratings. The only reasonable explanation is that reviews are for other place(s), not for this 'museum'. Because there is nothing really inside, except tacky communist propaganda. Add to this the fact that there is no aircon inside and you will get in idea that visiting this place wastes your time.
  • Great for students to discover Vietnamese history especially about our wonderful women. Sometimes they combine with art performances. Sounds great. Beautiful place.
  • No directions or signage to get to the exhibit. Go straight up towards the gold letters in the black building and up the steps... but before you do, you will have to stop by the security booth, admission is free. The guard was rude and blew his whistle at me and screamed English out loud to say I was going the wrong way. When I first entered, he pretended he didn’t know English. Only after I showed him pics on my phone where I wanted to go he spoke fluent English?! I even asked him numerous times if he spoke English. You will need a visitors pass that hangs from your neck and you will unfortunately have to get it from this A**hole guard. He was too busy collecting money as this was also a parking lot. Exhibit not really worth it, you can see this on the streets of Saigon if window shopping. Entire exhibit with reading the inserts took less than 30 minutes. It would have been worth it if the guard wasn’t such a prick. Such a sad waste for this exhibit, they need to hire someone that actually represents this exhibit, not the security/parking lot guy. The exhibit was dead on a Saturday afternoon, probably because of the terrible attitude of the guards.
