Its name was called Blanchard de la Brosse, South Vietnam governor's name, he's a French. However, the museum architecture is Saigon history in shape, a styleindochinois. We can see ba gua octagonal citadel, dragon and phoenix citadel in the past of Saigon when looking the building. The museum is beside Saigon zoo.
