It was presented in an interesting way. It does have lots of airplanes in the back to see also. The water tower was nice and the coffee shop next door a must. Keep this on your list to see for history sake

I had an amazing time learning about the Vietnamese Peoples' views and take on the War in Vietnam in the late 1960s and 1970s My father really enjoyed getting to relive and revisit the sights, sounds, and times of his younger years and replayed his part in the the United States' involvement in Vietnam

Very illuminating to see it from the Vietnamese voice. I learnt way more than I thought that I ever would.

I think its a museum more for the local people as it is not very tourist friendly. Not much translation and there are some old military flights display. I don't think its very interesting.

This is a great place to be at. Be prepared to be shocked by what happened in the war of 1970. Great amount of information to read whilst you troll around.

Very educative, The Vietnam War is now long enough in the past, so that we can take an objective view. Certainly worth a visit.

A walk through the history of Vietnam at war, numerous old guns and stories of War time leaders, became a bit repatitious and unless your a history buff I would give it a miss.

Full scale tanks and helicopters along with debris of destroyed American aircrafts present a somber picture yet offers you a close view of the hardships of a long war fought by vietnam. Number of exhibits, generally well marked and a lot to see, it's a must-see.
