Currently including a special exhibition being 50 years from the TET offensive in 1968 this museum is an interesting peek into the 20c history of the delta. Some but not all captions are in English.

The museum tells the story of some of the things that went on in this province during the Vietnam war. There are many old objects of life in the Mekong Delta.

A very modern museum with a great deal of helpful English signage. Tells the history of the Mekong Delta's people through their many wars and conflicts. Also nice history of local ethnic groups, costumes, work and artifacts. Don't Miss It if down in Can Tho.

The museum is free, convenient if you're in central Can Tho, and moderately interesting. There are amusing dioramas and some artifacts, professionally oresented. Nothing outstanding, nothing that you can't miss. Best items are the photos of Can Tho in 1900 and 1920.

The Can Tho museum serves as a regional museum for the entire Delta area. A heavy emphasis is given to the struggle against the French colonial regime and the 'American' war. The collection differs somewhat from others as the material is more regionally focused and...More
