Great afternoon!

The only reason that I didn't give it a 5, is due to the lack of English translation and background information. As a Canadian, I'm not as intimately familiar (that being said I... read more

Vietnam Military History Museum was for people who were interested in Military related treasures. Even the military used big tanks, helicopters and aeroplanes were displayed. Very interesting place.

As a Canadian, I'm not as intimately familiar (that being said I have done some reading on the subject) of the US involvement in the Vietnam war. I would've liked a bit more in terms of story line along... More

So you should visit. It explained why Vietnam won the wars with French, Japanese and American to unite the country in 1975. You can see the remains of B52 Fortress together with weapons and military equipment used during the wars. The museum is located at the Hanoi Flag Tower area. If you are lucky, you could find the gate to... More

It was a very average museum without too much things to see. Lack of information in English makes it considerably better with a tour guide, but it is more expensive to hire one. The airplanes and tanks outside of the building are the biggest highlight in my opinion. If you are only for a couple of days in Hanoi and... More

Nice museum with a good amount of things, giant tanks, big planes which i would advice not to climb of course. You also see things taken from downed planes and other military equipment from US military. Worth the visit.

Everything in vietnamese. Not a lot in english. No guides. Outside a lot of planes, tanks, and helicopters to see and inside the whole of the vietnamese military history in chronological order. Camera costs 30k extra but no one seemed to check.

I'm not a huge museum fan but it was great to hear the Vietnamese perspective of the conflict and I loved the outdoor exhibits - don't miss the tanks and planes out the back, there are no clear directions to the second outdoor area.

Really interesting. History going back through Vietnam's past. Planes, tanks, helicopters from the 70's and inside showing many conflicts from history. For anyone who is interested in History,

This is in a large building that keep going, being a little dry at first with older military history but improving as you work your way through, and with an impressive "back yard" of relics from the US involvement in the war from 1963-75
