Directly opposite a park featuring a large stone statue of Lenin is the Army Museum. Outside the museum sits Russian, American and Vietnamese weaponry left behind from the French and American wars. The museum itself mostly displays models, photos and information about battles. You will also see personal possessions of people involved on all sides of the disputes. Though the Russian jet fighter at the entrance will be what immediately catches your attention, the whole museum is worth a peek.
