Easy to spot thanks to a large collection of weaponry at the front, the Military Museum displays Soviet and Chinese equipment alongside French- and US-made weapons captured during years of warfare. The centrepiece is a Soviet-built MiG-21 jet fighter, triumphant amid the wreckage of French aircraft downed at Dien Bien Phu, and a US F-111.

Adjacent is the hexagonal Flag Tower, one of the symbols of Hanoi. Access is possible to a terrace overlooking a rusting collection of war matériel (equipment and supplies used by soldiers). Opposite the museum is a small park with a commanding statue of Lenin

Great collection of equipment, but in poor state. Disappointed to see clothes drying on a line tied between vehicles, on gun barrels, etc. and this is Vietnamese war-winning kit!

Lunch break from 11:30 to 14:00. Also closer Monday, Friday. Entrance fee is 40.000 and worth it.

When visiting the Military History Museum, don't forget to check out the sculptural installation of downed airplanes in the back courtyard.

vé vào cửa 20k,gửi xe 5k nhg có vẻ như chả ai mua vé vì họ trà trộn với khách vào bảo tàng uống cafe highland dưới chân cột cờ.Giờ đã dẹp bớt hiện vật để làm bãi đỗ xe,cái j cũng phải vì tiền trên hết

Lonely planet makes mention of an f-111 fighter bomber on site… i don't think it's there. This has most things the museums in Saigon have if you have been there before .

You have to know about the history before going there. It's not much background information.
