Vietnam National Museum of History Tours

Housed in the former École Française d’Extrême Orient one block east of the Opera House in Hanoi, the Museum of History (Bao Tang Lich Su) recounts Vietnam’s often overlooked millennia of history. Nearly 7,000 artifacts fill the 23,680-square-foot (2,200-square-meter) exhibition space, laid out chronologically from prehistory through the August 1945 Revolution. A second exhibition space recounts the history of the communist party in Vietnam.

The building itself, designed by French architect Ernest Hebrard, was completed in 1932 and was one of the first in the country to blend Chinese and French design elements into a single facade.
