  • An eye opener to the diversity of Vietnam and some important historical events. Probably about 3 hours is required to get an understanding.

  • It was very interesting place. Entrance fee is 40,000D reasonable price. Mostly cool inside and you can see a lot of Vietnam's tribes life style. Also, you can get experience about traditional village area.
  • It was great to be back for long periods. I came a bit late about 3:30 afternoon and spend most of my time in the main museum. After that, I got out and experience the architectural gardens (this was a great experience 😩😍) except time was running out. I don't have the chance to get into the kite? towel. Hope to come back to visit next time with much more time!!!
