Set in a classic two story building, 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 upstairs which is dedicated to Vietnam's revolutionary struggle and is surprisingly well-captioned in English. Around back are vestiges from the American War on display such as artillery pieces and ordinance, exploded and unexploded. Wierdly enough, there is also a topiary garden and tennis court next to these displays.
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.
