Imprisoned on Con Dao for his part in rebellion against French rule, Ton Duc Thang succeeded Uncle Ho as president of Vietnam, and remained in office until his death in 1980.

Spread over four rooms on the first floor, the museum has numerous artefacts belonging to the patriot in question. Perhaps more interesting are the collection of photographs taken in and around Saigon of various party meetings and headquarters.

One room focuses more on the general history of Vietnam during the French resistance.
