Easy to find. Doesn't take long to have a look through- good English displays. Go during the middle of the day to have a rest from the heat

It cost VND 15000 for entrance ticket. It was small and no air conditional inside the building. Come here during afternoon could be very warm.

Relatively small museum with a brief overview of the history of Ho Chi Minh City formerly called Saigon. Some interesting facts about the history but definitely not on our bucket list.
