Vietnam's Military Might on Show
One of the main military lessons of the 20th century for potential foes of Vietnam was that the country wouldn't take any invasion lying down. First the French then the Americans and finally the Chinese were out-thought and out-fought by the tenacious Vietnamese. This museum is ludicrously biased (as are most such institutions in Vietnam), but it's of huge interest for its collection of military memorabilia as well as captured U.S. and Chinese planes displayed on its grounds.
