Located right behind Hilton Hanoi opera hotel so its easy to find. Housed within a vintage building but what surprised me most is the massive collections of minerals from Vietnam on display. The staffs on duty are friendly and the visit is free of charge.

The geological museum is across the street from the history museum in a fairly large complex. Entry is currently free. At first glance the museum doesn't seem like much, but it actually covers three floors. On the first floor there are a number of small...More
