If you were a fan of war walking in, you won't be walking out. It's simultaneously interesting and devastatingly heartbreaking how the Vietnam war was fought, and the fallout that lingers amongst the locals to this day. On the street you wouldn't know it, but in the museum it's spelled out to you pretty clearly.
There's a perfectly preserved mummy at this museum! I don't know why it's not advertised more. The entrance fee is a great deal compared to the display inside. It's a quick walk around, but the contents are rich and diverse.
Very nice but don't count on seeing the water puppet show. It seemed like it was only for tour groups and no one could explain to us how individuals could see it. It was arranged very well showing the oldest to the newest artifacts. Cool mummy!
The museum contains a historical record dating from the earliest inhabitants of what is now Vietnam through the Nguyen dynasty, the last ruling family of Vietnam. Interesting, but one needs to keep in mind that all recent history is presented from the Vietnamese communist perspective.
Whilst I found it incredible, it also made me realize how the people have suffered before getting to this point in the country's history. It also depicts how far back the USA have been interfering in other people's lives and the damage they brought too
same tip for most tourist attractions in ho chi, be polite and walk away from anyone who approaches you in this area. 9.9 times out of ten you will be ripped off, overcharged greatly, and left with a sour taste. So ignore them and your visit will be better.
