What we say: 3.5 stars

Saigon's History Museum has been known by a number of names since its construction in 1928, but the theme remains the same.

The museum traces Vietnamese history from prehistoric times till the period of French occupation and carries an impressive range of artefacts.

Displays include Funan pieces found at Oc-Eo and a small selection of Cham sculpture (a more comprehensive range of Cham art can be found at the Cham Museum in Da Nang).

Photos are allowed but you must purchase a 30,000 VND photo ticket.
