Good place to visit whilst in Ho Chi Minh. Educational throughout. Good facilities including toilets on each floor, coffee shop on site and cold drinks for sale upstairs. Great exhibitions both indoors and outside.

Glad we went, although a little upsetting at times it really does put things into perspective. Well worth a visit

Two hours is ample time to view, we were there a few days ago and wandered around at our leisure. We visited here before heading to the palace which opens at 1pm. Enjoy.
