Superb collection of Military Artifacts
Feb 2020
This was one of the best military's museum that I have visited before. Simply wonderful. They have exhibits of US's aircrafts that was taken down by the Vietnamese Army. They have amazing exhibits of how the Vietnamese Army fought and chased away the invading armies. After a trip here, I truly admire and respect the people of Vietnam more.

Very Good Museum With Unique Exhibits
Mar 2020
Spent a great morning here. Unsurprisingly much of the focus is upon the French and American conflicts. I can't imagine that there's collection anywhere else in the world of US helicopters, planes, and other military vehicles to rival the one that the museum has

Military museum and citadel
Jan 2020 • Solo
Any museum of military history will peak an enthusiasts want to see coupled with the citadel makes for a great couple of hours. Yes things are dated but great representations of the major conflicts that Vietnam has endured, coupled with a visit to the citadel you will spend a good portion of the day, if your a history buff.

Fascinating
Feb 2020 • Couples
It was walking distance for us from the imperial palace. The sight of huge aeroplanes and helicopters and fighter jets and missiles just adds to the whole excitement. Once u enter the museum its a plethora of knowledge. They’ve displayed extensively about all the wars Vietnam has suffered over the ears. Must visit. Do hike the flag tower for some amazing views

Good photo opportunity
Mar 2020 • Couples
Military museum mainly covering the French and especially American conflicts .

Quite a lot of army and airforce hardware including ex US as one would expect. The internal exhibits weren’t really that exciting .

The Flag Tower is within the museum grounds which is worth a look.

Overall, ok for a visit, good for photos of the planes and tanks etc but I thought the similar museum in HCMC was better.

Should go to for military history
Jan 2020
I've constantly been captivated by Military and war history, watching films and also playing games based war. It was a total treat for me to find out all of the military equipment along with ammunition. Everybody may not like it almost as I did. Though its an extremely cool spot to enjoy.

We enjoyed the tour of the museum, it's a lot to take a look at. You will find scores of artifacts, military equipment, along with war info. The museum is affordable, you have to time the go to of yours as there's a lunchtime break for approx. An extremely great must-do activity.

Great museum
Feb 2020
Great museum of Vietnamese army history (which to ninety nine % of individuals would mean the French and american Wars) Dien Bien Phu area of French history great but Im guessing many people are simply enthusiastic about the US (and puppet South) vs North Vietnam. Really one sided propaganda version of events, that is really at odds with the typical US version of history - although North won, so in this instance they're permitted to create the story! Fascinating displays and also a lot of planes and tanks outside. It's a little overlooked as well as the US jets, particularly, would use a layer of paint and a little TLC, But usually, a fascinating museum in case you'd like historical past from an alternative viewpoint.

A Must see to recognize the country
Feb 2020
An anticipated 1 hour visit considered three in addition. it is not a great deal the weighty equipment outside, It is the graphic photo's & the stories & volumes that choose them in this particular museum. I went out of the top part of Vietnam on the bottom part by train, passing through the farms & villages & this's what made it much more confronting to believe what a lot of Vietnam's individuals have lived through. check out the Museum & I am certain you will have different perspective on both the country and the folks.
