Museum of the Vietnamese Revolution
Worth a look if you are in the area
What we say:
If you're a sucker for endless rooms (well, 29 to be exact) of Communist Party communications, black and white photos of Vietnamese revolutionary heroes, old flags and a good dose of war snaps, then this is the place for you.
Established in 1959, the more than 3,000 exhibits on display here trace the development of the Vietnamese revolution from its very early inception through to final victory.
The museum follows three main strands: the struggle for independence (1858–1945), the war of resistance (1945–1975) and Vietnam on the road to recovery (1975 to present). Unless you have a specific interest in the revolution, the museum probably isn't worth traipsing all the way across town to visit, but with the outstanding National Museum of Vietnamese History just across the road, you may as well pop in if you are already in the area.
