Small museum and known that he was president after Ho Chi Minh. Nothing special on this museum and you can give a miss

The exhibition is helping the viewers an overview on the formed situation of Vietnam National Assembly as well as the great contribution of Uncle Ton to the resistance war and national construction, gradually building people's democratic regime in Vietnam

Because this museum was close to where we were staying, and had walked by the entrance a few times, we decided to check it out. Fortunately at no cost. Over a couple of storeys, the architecture and view of the river from the second floor were the best things about the museum. Oh, and the picture of Ton Duc Thang... More

A museum about Ton Duc Thang. "About who?" you would say? Yes exactly. This summarises well the interest that you would have to go to this museum if you are not a passionate and really smart expert of Vietnam's history. This is a collection of some notes, documents, pictures, etc about a person that you probably do not know who... More

Found this museum by default and its well worth seeking out, it's situated in the waterfront and very easy to miss, look out for the"zest cafe" and it's next door. No entry charge and as the only visitors we got a private viewing. It's is basically the life story of one of Vietnamese leaders and gives an extra dimension to... More

This review is late. We stumbled upon the Ton Duc Thang Museum while walking along Ton Duc Thang Street. It is a small museum in honor of one of Vietnam's leader. There was nobody there when we visited so we took our time looking at the exhibits and taking photos.

An okay museum, but not worth spending much time here. I do not think they have very many visitors. They went ahead of us and turned the lights on and then shut them off after we left. There are some interesting historical items here, but probably not worth a lot of effort to get here.

If you go here with a curious and ironic frame of mind, I think this is one of the city's best museums (not that there is a great deal of competition). It's fascinating to see the veneration of a party leader and how propaganda myths are constructed. The room proudly displaying the clothes and everyday objects that 'Uncle Ton' used... More

Covers the same themes as The War Remnants Museum and Reunification Palace as well as offering glimpses into the life of a rebel in the countryside of northernmost Vietnam under French occupation.No charge and no souvenirs. Good cafe in the grounds and right in city centre not far from main hotels.
