Located at 157 Đội Cấn, Ba Đình district, Hanoi, the B-52 Victory Museum is more than just a collection of artifacts – it’s a crash course in the rollercoaster ride that is Vietnamese history.

B-52 Tales: Unveiling the Wreckage Wonders

Embark on a journey through the main building, immersing yourself in exhibits that unveil the intricacies of the Vietnamese revolution, the First Indochina War, and the unforgettable Vietnam War.

Witness the aftermath of Operations Rolling Thunder, Linebacker, and Linebacker II, all while watching for the wreckage of a B-52D or G Stratofortress – a genuine war hero with a questionable past.

Hồ B-52: More Than Just a Lake

Saunter about 300 meters south of the “B-52 lake,” Hồ B-52 or Huu Tiep Lake, and discover a submerged fragment of the B-52 undercarriage.

Spoiler alert: the lake’s plaque might have some facts mixed up, but who cares when you’re standing next to a piece of aviation history?
