Compared to other national attractions in Hanoi, this was not a good experience. While chronologically well organised, the English descriptions were mostly meaningless and just bad copy and paste jobs. Very, very repetitive with multiple exhibits and photos repeated ad nauseam. What a pity, should be a key high profile attraction of modern Vietnam's birth for foreign visitors

This museum catalogs the history over the past century or so and concentrates on different struggles mainly from a military perspective. There are some gaps in the story and parts of the museum's flow are disjointed. The exhibits are somewhat eclectic in nature with an emphasis on weapons. One thing that does shine through in this exhibition is the spirit... More

it's an experience that will bring you the spirit of togetherness. you will see how VIetnam transformed through the revolution and get their independence. I came from a country which was colonized over 3 century, but this experience is at another level

This museum is basically a series of indoor and outdoor displays of equipment and war artifacts with a 3-4 sentence description of each item. As an American it was a little it jarring to see US military aircraft and vehicles on display given they were captured or shot down. We did not get a guide and would recommend one of... More

When you go to the Vietnamese History museum you get this in the ticket price so we thought we'd visit. Museum is a loose term though. It's more of a Hall of Fame of Vietnamese revolutionaries, with minimal information on what actually happened.

This is a rather dull museum, mostly into Communist propaganda. The exhibits are divided into numerous rooms, with no real logic - they are just there. WI-FI is partially available in the museum. The ticket is less than 2USD and also includes entrance to the nearby revolution museum. An hour is all you need for those two museums, but feel... More

It was interesting, but I have to agree with other reviewers; If you don't have a basic understanding of recent Vietnamese history this would be difficult to follow. There are no informations boards to explain it all. And definitely don't take children - they would be bored stiff!
