Here are five museums to visit while you're in Vietnam!

War Remnants Museum, Ho Chi Minh City

The War Remnants Museum is the most popular museum in HCMC. The museum contains exhibits relating to the Vietnam War such as graphic photographs and American military equipment on display, including a helicopter with rocket launchers, a tank, a fighter plane, and single-seater attack aircraft. Check out this museum to grasp what Vietnam’s war history was about but also to understand more about Vietnamese people value and care about.

The Museum of Vietnamese History, Ho Chi Minh City

One of many museums in Ho Chi Minh City, this site offers a variety of ancient artifacts and other items that speak about the history of Indochina.
There are some fantastic examples of sculptures and art from the Cham and Oc Eo civilizations, collections of porcelain and art from various historical periods and even a preserved mummy found in Saigon.

Vietnam National Museum of Fine Arts, Hanoi

Housed in a gorgeous French Colonial building, the Vietnam Fine Arts Museum is a real treasure trove of traditional, religious, modern and contemporary Vietnamese art. Highlights of its collections include Buddhist art, objects, and clothes from Vietnam`s ethnic minority groups and some stunning lacquer work.

Vietnamese Women Museum, Hanoi

One of Vietnam's top museums, this is a truly intriguing place. The museum explores Vietnam`s cultural diversity and reflects the lives and roles of Vietnamese women in society.
The Vietnamese Women’s Museum is a community collection of cultural and historical knowledge about Vietnamese women’s lives across the nation’s 54 ethnic community groups.

Diep Dong Nguyen House, Hoi An

Considered the first private museum in the central part of Vietnam, Diep Dong Nguyen House is an ancient house famous among travelers. To visit this house you don’t need a ticket, and can freely and safely see and touch the objects in the house. How’s that for a cool thing to do in Ho chi minh city?

The Non-Touristy Mekong Delta Private Day Trip

Ted’s video bio claimed that he was “the fun guide” and he was! He was also incredibly professional prior to, during and even after our tour. Ted put my mind at ease before we even met. During the tour he answered all of our questions, gave us fun, interesting facts about the region, and was genuinely interested in us. I really loved how he texted us key Vietnamese phrases and maps of the areas we would visit while we drove to the Mekong Delta. Thank you Ted for makIng our Vietnamese tour truly memorable.

A customized trip with Tong

Tong from start to finish took the time to personalize everything for our tour! He was very genuine and knowledgeable about the culture, history, and food that Saigon has to offer. We had an amazing day and it was the highlight of our trip for sure. We saw everything from cultural landmarks to “hidden gem” street markets. Highly recommend him as a tour guide if you’re looking to truly see and learn about Saigon from a local’a perspective!
