On the rocks
What we say:
One of two museums of its kind in the country, the Ho Chi Minh City Geological Museum was established in 1954 and sits on the corner of Nguyen Binh Khiem and Nguyen Huu Canh.
A small building, it still houses more than 20,000 samples of stones and minerals as well as a small collection of fossils.
The collection is split between two floors and presented in well-lit display cases.
Besides displays of rocks, the museum also explains Vietnamese geology and the geological evolution of the world.
There are tours daily.
