Located just inside the Zoo and Botanical Gardens, this museum features artefacts from Vietnamese culture over the years, starting from 2000BC. There are valuable pieces from Cambodia’s Angkor Wat and a mummy of a woman who died nearly a hundred and fifty years ago and was dug up in District 5. The museum is large – more than 2,000sqm – so it should keep you occupied for a while. All the displays are explained in English, Vietnamese and French. It costs 15,000 dong to enter.
I went to the museum on the second day of Ho Chi Minh. I walked from Pham Ngu Lao Street. When I went there, the lobby was closed, so I turned bricks in the courtyard. Helicopters, mortars, tanks, etc. have a sense of time. For those born in the 1980s who have not experienced war, these military facilities amaze us. Worth seeing!
This museum is an eye-opener. The exhibits are virtual. Here you can see the war from the perspective of the Vietnamese people, which is very different from the American perspective. The display of the tunnel and the original weapons used by the Vietnamese people is very interesting. We are very happy this tour. Worth seeing!
It is worth your visit. These are marked in Vietnamese, French and English. Don't miss any signs. The admission fee is only $1. If you are nearby, even a little stop is very worthwhile. Worth a visit!
