SAIGON DAY 7: Museum of Vietnamese History


So on this day we went to the Museum of
Vietnamese history, which is actually located on the same grounds as the
Saigon Zoo and Botanical Gardens, but you buy the tickets separately. So, if you
really want you could see either on their own. But I’d say if you’re already there,
you should really just see both The Museum of Vietnamese History’s
building itself is actually really cool, and I think in the museum they have different
exhibits with sculptures and other artifacts from prehistoric days
up until about a century ago. And they have a few rooms dedicated to
dioramas of different scenes from wars that Vietnam has fought in the
past with France and China. And then on the outside they have
a courtyard with just a collection of cannons
from a couple of centuries ago. And that was sort of a cool
and unexpected thing to see in the museum. I think the museum itself isn’t too big
and it’s not too crowded. But it’s still just a
pretty interesting experience to have And I think if you’re in District 1,
it’s worth a visit. Especially if you want to combine it with
the Zoo and Botanical Gardens next door. I think that together is a pretty nice way
to spend the afternoon. Hi everyone, this is Sam with the Accessibility
Guide info for the Museum of Vietnamese History. The museum is partially accessible. The entrance is equipped with a ramp, however it is very steep and it has no railing. While most of the rooms
in the museum are accessible, rooms 6-11 are not. Unfortunately the museum is not equipped with wheelchair-accessible bathrooms. The nearest wheelchair-accessible bathroom
is located at the Saigon Zoo’s restaurant.
