Ho Chi Minh City Museum
Ho Chi Minh City Museum is a historical site in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. The museum is situated at the corner of Ly Tu Trong street and Nam Ki Khoi Nghia street, near Independence Palace.
Called Gia Long Palace before the Fall of Saigon, it was the office of President of the Republic of Vietnam Ngo Dinh Diem when he returned to Vietnam after the Geneva Conference in 1954 and was the last place he worked before he was murdered in a coup d’etat in November 1963. The successor presidents still worked here until the completion of Reunification Hall.
After the Fall of Saigon, the palace was turned into a museum.
