Learn more about the city at Ho Chi Minh City Museum, a neoclassical museum with historical exhibitions and archeological artifacts. Built in 1885, the structure was originally operated as the Gia Long Palace. After taking in the building's architecture, head inside to see displays about local independence, city maps, and artwork. Below the museum lies a system of concrete bunkers where President Diem and his brother hid out in 1963. After touring inside, check out the American-built fighter jet used to bomb the presidential palace in 1975, which is exhibited in the museum's gardens.

  • There's not much to see here to be honest. I wouldn't suggest making a special trip just to go here. It's pretty hot (no AC) and the signage isn't great in English. Go to the art museum instead!
