    Very interesting museum!
    Absolutely stunning museum. Such vast information on the history of vietnam dating back centuries. Not many places we went had as much detail/ artefacts and it was so interesting and great to see. The garden courtyard area was absolutely beautiful. They also do water puppet shows there, although we didn’t do this it looked great. Definitely recommend

    Interesting place with a lot to see
    A pretty good museum with a lot to see and plenty of information about the history of Vietnam. Closes in the middle of the day so plan your trip. If you want to read all the information then it will take some time. Plenty of information in English which is great if you speak that language.

    Nice small museum on Vietnam history
    Nice small museum of Vietnam history from prehistoric period to the last emperor in mid 1900’s. Exhibits were good but could be organized a little better to have a better flow. Museum was not air conditioned but did have many fans and open windows to keep air circulating and relatively tolerable and cool. Cost of admission was 30K dongs or less than $1.50 USD. They do close for lunch from 12-1:30PM. Worth an hour or two to learn about the history of Vietnam and its people.

Nice enough museum with lots of interesting exhibits. Focuses on a lot of early Vietnamese history. There is only fans for coolness here, no air conditioning, so best to go early

A really interesting and informative place to visit and learn more about the history of Vietnam. On our visit some of the exhibitions were packed away and not out so felt like we missed out but apart from that it was wonderful.

We arrived at the museum at 10am and was promptly ushered to the water puppet show which starts at 1030am. The entire puppet show was in Vietnamese apart from the intro so we could not understand the conversations that was ongoing. The biggest shock was that after the show at 1130am, we were promptly ushered out of the museum as they close at 1130am and reopens at 130am. So we paid for the museum and additional for the water puppet show but did not get to really see the exhibits nor understand what was going on during the show! So caveat emptor.

If you want to get more understanding of the history of Vietnam since the beginning, this is the right place. It was brief for everything but it was ok to get some knowledge about how Vietnam is like today

At last, a museum that displays everything chronologically. Bless them.
It makes it very easy to go through the country history (it stops before modern era). There's a lot to read if you wish and a lot of descriptions and depictions about where the local tribes were located, and who fought who, when.
However you can easily go through the museum and look at some nice artefacts.
