Ben Tre Revolutionary Museum

An interesting exhibition

What we say: 3.5 stars

Set in a classic two storey builing, the tree-filled grounds here are a favourite hangout for canoodling locals whiling away the slow hours in each other's arms.

The highlight of a visit here is the photographic display within. There's a small archeological display but the more interesting half of the museum is dedicated to Vietnam's revolutionary struggle and is surprisingly well-captioned in English.

The display includes a series on the assassination/murder (the language varies from photo to photo) of one local unfortunate, though its unclear why, in a province that saw such heavy fighting during the American war, this individual should receive such prominent coverage.

You'll need about thirty minutes to fully explore the museum -- that's not to suggest you should travel across Vietnam to see it, but if you're already in Ben Tre -- why not.

Admission is free.
