Fifth Military Division Museum of Da Nang

The Fifth Military Division Museum of Da Nang was built in 1977, offering visitors a glimpse of Vietnam’s tumultuous past with extensive displays of war relics, news articles, and photographs taken by soldiers of the Fifth Military Division. The museum also commemorates Vietnam’s most beloved leader with a replica of Ho Chi Minh's residence and a separate Ho Chi Minh Museum.

 

 

Divided into four main sections, its outdoor display area houses authentic aircraft, military tanks, and weapons used during the French and American wars. Most of these exhibits are in pristine condition, with must-sees including the A-37 Dragonfly light-attack aircraft, Cessna O-1 Bird Dog observation aircraft, and the M48 Patton gun tank.

The museum’s indoor display area comprises 12 showrooms, displaying thousands of photographs and news articles on the Vietnamese military’s establishment, struggles, and victory. There are also numerous personal belongings and interesting backgrounds of prominent soldiers, including a pair of slippers that belonged to Phan Thi Mua. She was a female special task force member who detonated an American fuel depot in 1972 by smuggling dynamite powder in her slippers.

 

 

Set along Duy Tan Street in Da Nang City, the museum is a short five-minute drive from Han market. While entrance is free of charge for locals, foreign visitors are required to pay VND 40,000 for admission to the museum and an additional VND 10,000 for photos. If you’re a history buff looking to learn more about Vietnam’s struggle towards independence from foreign invaders, make sure you include this prominent Da Nang attraction in your travel itinerary.
