Authentic wreckage and weaponary from the Vietnam war. Details and when and where they were used plus photos and other memorabilia. A must for anyone interested in Vietnamese history and the war. Easy walk down from Ho Chi Minh museum and war museum.

The museum itself is not very interesting, though a very good start to discover real Hanoi street life. Its very cool to walk from here to the stadium and further to the Literature temple (small streets, markets, etc)

FYI. This is closed on Monday and Friday. There is a bunch of wreckage from B52 bombers as well as some SAM missile launchers. Worth a quick visit particularly if you are interested in war memorabilia.

Like all the war presentations hugely biased, but nevertheless still interesting, a huge wrecked B52, plus SAM's (aren't they large), and a MIG, worthy a quick look around

Worth a look to fill in time. Lots of pieces and bits and some interesting bits of history but not much else. This display is free so you loose nothing and may even learn something.

Had heard about a B52 that had crashed during the Vietnam war. This museum had the recovered wreckage of a B52 but apparently quite a number had been shot down. A few other bits and pieces to see but not much. Entry was free and...More

I was bitten by two dogs who stay in the grounds of the museum. Luckily I was wearing jeans and their bites didn't pierce the skin. A Vietnamese woman was also bitten when I was there, and I saw the dog attempting to bite another...More

Visit if you’re an aviation or war buff to wander thru shot down / crashed B52 parts and pilot / crew memorabilia. Has SAM misled and AAA / antiaircraft artillery examples. Not we’ll laid out or explained.
