Fifth Military Division
Museum in Da Nang

"Interesting to see these types of vehicles and weapons up close. Unbelievable that they managed to win with relatively simple weapons. It was mainly willpower and persistence that they won, and the persistence to defend the motherland. The horrible thing is that they have been tried to attack / exterminate in all kinds of horrible ways. And the striking thing is that as a tourist you do not notice any hatred towards foreigners, even though we constantly and only spoke English."

Fifth Military Division Museum

          The Fifth Military Division Museum - is nowhere near as impressive as the Ho Chi Minh Museum in Hanoi, although it is worth it if you don't go further north. Here you can take a look at the small halls with photos and text about the life of the nationally loved 'Uncle Ho', complete with a small replica of his house on stilts in Hanoi with a pond.
Da Nang has always played a very important role in all military conflicts due to its special geographic location and economic development.

The museum is located on Duy Tan Street in Da Nang City, just a five-minute drive from Han Market. Although the locals have free entry, foreign visitors have to pay a small entrance fee to the museum and something else if you want to take photos.
If you are a history buff and want to learn more about Vietnam's struggle to gain independence from foreign invaders, make sure to include this prominent Da Nang attraction in your itinerary.
It covers the entire Vietnamese resistance to foreign occupation by the Chinese, the First Indochina War with the French, the Vietnam War, and the current standoff with China over the Spratly Islands and Paracel Islands.



Built in 1977, Da Nang's Museum of the Fifth Military Division offers visitors a glimpse into Vietnam's tumultuous past with extensive displays of war relics, news articles, and photos taken by soldiers of the Fifth Military Division. The museum complex consists of four main areas: an outdoor exhibition of large military equipment; a military museum; a reproduction of Ho Chi Minh's house in Hanoi; and a Ho Chi Minh museum.

Tank dismantled

The indoor area of the museum's exhibit includes 12 small halls with thousands of photos and news articles about the establishment, struggle and victory of the Vietnamese army. There are also plenty of personal belongings and interesting backgrounds of prominent soldiers, including a pair of slippers that belonged to Phan Thi Mua.
Phan Thi Mua was a female member of the special task force that detonated a US fuel depot in 1972 by using dynamite powder into her slippers.

The outside area is divided into four areas and houses authentic aircraft, military tanks and weapons used during the French and American wars. Most of the on display is in pristine condition, with must-see attractions, including the A-37 Dragonfly light attack aircraft, the Cessna O-1 Bird Dog observation plane, and the M48 Patton gun tank.
Some great examples are still in good condition, including jets and support planes from both sides of each conflict, many of which are still attached with grenade and rocket launchers. Unfortunately, you can't climb in and sit on the controls.

Hidden behind the buildings is a replica of Ho Chi Minh's home in Hanoi and a museum about him.
Despite the vast grounds of this museum, it is largely a worship of Ho Chi Minh.
