HCMC Museum is a grand, neoclassical structure built in 1885. It was once known as Gia Long Palace (and later the Revolutionary Museum).
What I love about the museum is its beautiful and impressive architecture. It is a great place for visitors to understand our city’s story through archaeological arte-facts, ceramics, old city maps and displays of the marriage traditions of Vietnamese ethnic tribes.
If you’re into military history, you can check out the American-built F-5E jet that a renegade pilot used to bomb the Presidential Palace in 1975.
