The entree is free. If you don't know the history, it may be time wasted for you. One thing I experienced is that many of the museums close during lunch time sometime between 11am to 1:30pm. So plan accordingly.

Uncle Ton was the president of North Vietnam after Ho. Apparently he is loved by the people even if unknown anywhere else in the world. Not many customers in the morning and the exhibits were hagiographic and mundane other than their connection to Uncle Ton. Worth a short visit if this type of history is of interest, but not a...

Small museum and known that he was president after Ho Chi Minh. Nothing special on this museum and you can give a miss

Because this museum was close to where we were staying, and had walked by the entrance a few times, we decided to check it out. Fortunately at no cost. Over a couple of storeys, the architecture and view of the river from the second floor were the best things about the museum. Oh, and the picture of Ton Duc Thang... More

A museum about Ton Duc Thang. "About who?" you would say? Yes exactly. This summarises well the interest that you would have to go to this museum if you are not a passionate and really smart expert of Vietnam's history. This is a collection of some notes, documents, pictures, etc about a person that you probably do not know who... More

Found this museum by default and its well worth seeking out, it's situated in the waterfront and very easy to miss, look out for the"zest cafe" and it's next door. No entry charge and as the only visitors we got a private viewing. It's is basically the life story of one of Vietnamese leaders and gives an extra dimension to... More

This review is late. We stumbled upon the Ton Duc Thang Museum while walking along Ton Duc Thang Street. It is a small museum in honor of one of Vietnam's leader. There was nobody there when we visited so we took our time looking at the exhibits and taking photos.

An okay museum, but not worth spending much time here. I do not think they have very many visitors. They went ahead of us and turned the lights on and then shut them off after we left. There are some interesting historical items here, but probably not worth a lot of effort to get here.
