Vietnam Military History Museum

HanoiArmy Museum

The Army Museum was established in 1959 at the center of Hanoi, near V.L Lenin’s statue, some 600 meters from President Ho Chi Minh’s Mausoleum to the East.

The museum displays Soviet and Chinese equipment alongside French- and US-made weapons captured during years of warfare, as well as offers a lively and attractive history of the Vietnamese people’s armed forces under the leadership of Vietnam’s communist party and of president Ho Chi Minh.

Thousands of exhibits, photographs, maps, scale models, are in the museum. This will give visitors a good general knowledge of the process of the birth, growth and victories of the Vietnamese people’s armed forces for the cause of peace, independence and freedom.

The centerpiece exhibited here is a Soviet-built MiG-21 jet fighter, triumphant amid the wreckage of French aircraft downed at Dien Bien Phu, and a US F-111. The exhibits include English translations.
