Small museum in Ancient town. Has a few sort of interesting exhibits and a few artifacts by far NOT a must see.

Really a sad and small collection of items. Probably the best part is the view from the roof. Some interesting propaganda items from the Vietnam War.

Has the potential to be a wonderful place. The exhibits on the Vietnam War are genuinely interesting, and worth a look if you're into modern history. The local exhibits are less well-presented though are reasonable in their own right. The top floor of the museum gives you a great panorama over the ancient city. Unfortunately, it was a squalid dump... More

After enjoying the National Museum of Kuala Lumpur this was a definite disappointment. The displays were antiquated and dusty, the English sub-titles needed some correcting ... just as well it was free.

Given the rich cultural history of Hoi An, I had high hopes for this museum. Sadly I think you could get more information from the Wikipedia page. It seems as if it hasn't been touched since it was opened, and contains very little information about Hoi An's history. Not worth one of your 5 tickets.

We did not pay to enter the museum. The American war relics are in English but all the other items are not. The museum is very basic and tired but interesting. If you walk to the top floor you get a beautiful 360 degree view of Hoi An. Unfortunately the area is messy with furniture and rubbish lying around which... More

Quite small, not anywhere near enough explanation of the artefacts to make it interesting. The art is all modern and unimpressive. Aircon turned off so far too hot. Half of it was closed, including the cafe which was simply a mess. No other visitors, staff just lounging around.

This is a small museum but with interesting exhibits. The signage for each exhibit is in both English and Vietnamese. It was only my husband and I at the museum and we figured that it's because this place is not well publicised. The fourth floor is a cafe and has nice views of the old city and a wondeful breeze....

We couldn't believe that entry to this museum only costs one of the 5 tickets that you get with your Ancient Town entry ticket. This museum is well worth the visit, apart from wartime artefacts it also has a room that includes ancient artefacts. Do also go to the rooftop for a great view over Hoi An.
