* Note that this museum is being renovated and is closed as of January 2006.

If you are an airplane buff then you must go here. The Air Force Museum is one of the larger museums in the country and the outside features a number of Siviet built MIGs, reconnaissance planes, helicopters and other equipment. The inside provides the history of the Vietnamese Air Force with the primary focus on the American War.

What a great museum! However, I found the exhibit on the B-52s interesting. They were celebrating the fact that they brought down 9 B-52s during the war. However, I calculated that the Americans bombed Vietnam with B-52s for around 9 years. So they shot down 1 B-52 a year and there were how many missions flown?

Address: D Truong Chinh in the Dong Da District
Directions: Your going to have to grab a moto for this one as the museum is located far to the SW.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
