Spent a few hours here looking around and taking photos of the old military vehicles. Also has a cafe there which is good for a small rest before going out to see more sites.

It is an interesting place to visit, and to know the history of conflicts with the French, Japanese and Americans.

This was a superb museum which covered the 2200 years of Vietnamese resistance to foreign domination. Particular emphasis is on the French and American wars. Many interesting exhibits, but they need to be grouped together around themes or some overarching narrative needs to be provided, along with better English signage.

A really great museum with some great artifices going back a long way. Not just US war relics but the citadel and ancient artifacts found throughout the city are amazing. Great couple of hours for anyone who likes a bit of history.

Exhibits were well laid out and were very interesting; mixture of indoor and open air. Kids will love all the big planes and tanks.
