Vietnam History Museum Review

Much of Vietnam's history, and consequently its identity today, has been influenced by outsiders. In ancient times the Khmer and Chinese empires occupied large portions of modern-day Vietnam, and in more recent times the country has been partially or completely occupied by French, Japanese, and American forces. The Vietnam History Museum is an excellent place to get the Vietnamese perspective on these events as well as some unexpected surprises, most notably the oldest mummy ever found in the country. The competent English introductions in the museum's exhibits are extremely helpful.
