The Pearl of the Orient, Ho Chi Minh City is the largest city in Vietnam and is its economic and cultural capital. The city boasts of many picturesque pagodas and impressive official buildings of the colonial era. That the city takes pride in its culture and history is conveyed by the numerous museums that dot every corner in this city. Out of these innumerable museums, one that stands out is the History Museum of Ho Chi Minh City.

The History Museum of Ho Chi Min City is also known as the Museum of Vietnamese History. It was built in 1929 and was originally called the Blanchard de la Brosse Museum.

Post 1975 the museum was expanded and has been called the Museum of Vietnamese History since then. The museum exhibits its collection in two parts:-
