Location: Revolutionary Museum is located
on No.65 Ly Tu Trong Street, District 1, Ho Chi Minh City.
Characteristic: The Revolutionary Museum used to be enlisted as the
Governor of Nam Kyï¿½s residence.
The construction of the museum started in 1885 and was completed in 1890 under
the design of French architect Alfred Fabulous. Following that, the building
became the residence of Japanese Governor Minoda. It was also the office of the
Nam Bo Provisional Administrative Committee (1945) and of the Republic of France
High Commissioner. The building was later reconverted into the residence of the
Governor of Nam Ky. Until August 1978, the building was finally turned into the
Ho Chi Minh City Revolutionary Museum. The museum displays items related to the
invasion of Vietnam by French colonialists, the founding of the Vietnam
Communist Party, the anti-French resistance in Saigon-Gia Dinh (1945 to 1954),
the anti-American movement, the national resistance of Saigon-Gia Dinh and the
Ho Chi Minh Campaign.
