The Ho Chi Minh Campaign Museum, which was formerly an exhibition hall about the Ho Chi Minh Campaign established in 1987, is under the management of the 7th Military Zone Museum.
The museum aims to preserve and introduce items related to the campaign to local and foreign visitors, and to collect documents, images and items of valuable intangible heritage related to the offensive and the campaign, and organise on-site and mobile exhibitions.
It has 6,293 objects and more than 500 documents and images related to the general offensive in the spring of 1975 — with the historic Ho Chi Minh Campaign as its pinnacle — which ended successfully, leading to the ultimate victory of the resistance war against the US and the reunification of the country.

Many of the items have historical value, such as the Operation Book of the Ho Chi Minh Campaign, a national treasure.
On the occasion of the opening, the museum has received items from families of officers and soldiers who participated in the Ho Chi Minh Campaign, such as General Le Duc Anh, Senior Lieutenant General Hoang Cam, and Senior Lieutenant General Vu Lang.
A campaign calling for donations of images, documents, items and memorabilia related to the Ho Chi Minh Campaign will run until April 30.
