Introduction Museum of the Revolution

Hardly surprisingly, one of the first public buildings completed by the French was the Customs House (1903). Museum of the Revolution situated originally on the former Quay Clemenceau, facing the Red River. Recalling that a good part of the resources of the colony came from taxes on the import and export of merchandise, including taxes on salt, alcohol and opium, this would have been an important building. The style of architecture relates to numerous public buildings designed by architect Henri Vildieu. Behind these iron grills, the entrance to the building is topped by a moulded arch, its minimal decoration based on a play of tall rectangular windows separated by pilasters.

Inside Museum of the Revolution

Inside Museum  are displays of numerous documents from the Vietnamese Movement for Independence, a room dedicated to the life of Ho Chi Minh and other rooms tracing the American-Vietnam War.

Retracing my steps round the corner into Trang Tien, walk back to what these days is known prosaically as the Municipal Theatre, although even taxi drivers still call it the Opera.
