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!
entry ticket 20.000vnd/pax,show off weapons of both ussr & us army in vietnam war,tank,missile,artilery,choper,plane,not have much subtitle by english but so much visitor are westerner,disapointed
Lunch break from 11:30 to 14:00. Also closer Monday, Friday. Entrance fee is 40.000 and worth it.
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 .
When visiting the Military History Museum, don't forget to check out the sculptural installation of downed airplanes in the back courtyard.
Единственные надписи по-русски, это на частях самолёта. Вся экспозиция представлена на трёх языках (вьетнамский, французский, английский).
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
Pretty museum, lots of information about the Vietnam war!
Huge museum about VN wars. Highly recommended!
You have to know about the history before going there. It's not much background information.
