The entree is free. If you don't know the history, it may be time wasted for you. One thing I experienced is that many of the museums close during lunch time sometime between 11am to 1:30pm. So plan accordingly.

Small museum and known that he was president after Ho Chi Minh. Nothing special on this museum and you can give a miss

This review is late. We stumbled upon the Ton Duc Thang Museum while walking along Ton Duc Thang Street. It is a small museum in honor of one of Vietnam's leader. There was nobody there when we visited so we took our time looking at...More

An okay museum, but not worth spending much time here. I do not think they have very many visitors. They went ahead of us and turned the lights on and then shut them off after we left. There are some interesting historical items here, but...More
