A good place to get a sense of the conflicts the Vietnamese people have lived through in the recent past.

Wish Vietnam had other than war as History. The restaurant there was good for a quick bite and Vietnamese Coffee.

I dropped in while on a business trip to Hanoi, and our hosts arranged a drop by of this museum. Certainly, the sculpture made by wrecked aircraft and the collection of military equipment, ours and theirs, was interesting. I also perused with interest the portions...More

Obviously the museum is shaded to the Vietnam prospective. Which is Ok since it is their museum. It was interesting to view the times that Vietnam was at war. With the French, the Americans, and each other. Worth a visit.

Great collection of artifacts mostly from Vietnams wars against colonialism. Always appreciate seeing history from a new perspective. Worth a visit for the small entrance fee.

Entry fee was very modest 40K which included the flag tower. There are planes and tanks on display and the flag tower to go up. Ice cream is available when you need respite from the heat and walking around, we had coconut flavour for 10K...More

Some interesting vehicles, including a US plane that was shot down. It’s a good opportunity to see the flag tower up close and climb up it’s lower levels

we meant to go to the citadel and ended up here by accident. Lots of exhibits, planes, tanks, bombs, etc, some of them dramatically displayed.

This museum does not do justice to Vietnam's proud military history. Overly reliant on photos despite the wealth of military artifacts that should be available, especially from 20th century conflicts. Makes mention of triumphs over imperial China, the Mongols, French, and US, but does not...More
