About Vietnam Museum of Revolution
Built in 1917 by the French colony, the place is now dedicated to displaying artifacts, documentaries and sporadic exhibitions about Vietnamese’s struggle in modern history. The content is divided into three parts, 1858-1945; 1945- 1975 and 1975-now, which correspond with the French colonialism period, the Vietnam War period and the Post-war period. As impressive as the range of topics covered is the interior and exterior design of the building, which can be found only in other historic places put up during the early 20th century in Hanoi.
