South East Armed Forces Museum
For military buffs
What we say:
Also known as the No 7 Army Museum, the South East Armed Forces Museum sits near the airport in Ho Chi Minh City's Tan Banh District.
Unlike the War Remnants Museum, which primarily focuses on the American War, this museum also covers the early Indochina wars with France as well as national defence practices through to the 1990s.
On the outside grounds of the museum several restored pieces of military equipment sit, including tanks and large guns. Inside you'll find dioramas of Vietnamese military engagements as well as examples of rooms and living conditions in the Cu Chi Tunnels.
