Ho Chi Minh City Museum is situated at 65 Ly Tu Trong Street, District 1, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. The place used to be enlisted as the Governor of Nam Ky’s residence during the colonial time.

The construction of the museum started in 1885 and was completed in 1890 under the design of French architect Alfred Foulhoux. 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 Ho Chi Minh City Museum.

Ho Chi Minh City Museum displays items related to the invasion of Vietnam by French colonialists, the founding of the Viet Nam Communist Party, the anti-French resistance in Sai Gon-Gia Dinh (1945 to 1954), the anti-American movement, the national resistance of Sai Gon-Gia Dinh and the Ho Chi Minh Campaign.
