  • Small museum with lots of info can buy books to read later has also got originals of letters formulas etc lady who runs it lovely think 20,000 dong for adult 10,000 for my 11 yr old  more »
  • Small informative Museum: this man has devoted his life to Nha Trang and the Viet Nam! Ask that put you the videos in function. Is located along the grand boulevard, in front of the sea. On the 1st floor of the building. Air-conditioned Museum...

  • The Museum is very beautiful, with its Street-glance attracts attention. But the museum itself turned out to be a small-he left of seemingly basic, beautiful building. If you know French, sure it will be more interesting to you than me-you can read a description of the exhibition samples, immerse yourself in history and find unique facts. Unfortunately, I just walked around the space around and went on the whole excursion took me no more than 15 minutes.
