Vietnam Military History Museum – A Glimpse into the Country’s War Torn Past

The Vietnam Military History Museum (also known as the Army Museum) is a museum that opened in Hanoi, Vietnam, in 1956. It is one of Vietnam’s seven major national museums and attracts many visitors every day. The history museum is massive in size and spans an area of around twelve thousand square metres, nearly all of that is covered in interesting exhibits and displays from Vietnam’s war torn past. Most displays have English signage and are thus, easy to follow.

Although small in size, Vietnam has a long history of war. It has been invaded by foreign countries time and time again, and while the country has been conquered for short periods of time, it has always triumphed in the end. In that sense, the museum is not merely a collection of defunct military equipment, but also a tribute to the resiliency of the Vietnamese spirit.

The collection includes numerous weapons including guns and different types of ammo. Of particular interest are the photographic exhibits which feature photos from the wars. There are maps and scale models of various battles on display here. Various war vehicles such as tanks and planes are also on display. Visitors should keep an eye out for the pyramid made out of wreckages salvaged from wars. While the contents of the museum are not overly graphic, it remains a sobering reminder of the horrors of war and the terrifying weapons used during.

All tourists visiting Hanoi should take the time to visit the Vietnam Military History Museum. It is bound to be an educational and interesting experience. The museum can be found opposite the famous Lenin Park, which features a giant statue of Lenin. The Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum is also close by and can be visited afterwards. The museum is closed on Mondays and Fridays.
