You mean the so called "Museum of Victory over B-52"?
I am asking because there is also an "army museum", official name "Hanoi Vietnam Military History Museum" but there is no B52 wreckage in this museum.
I visited the "Museum of Victory over B-52" and the B52-lake two years ago and posted some pictures: viewtopic.php?t=1028383
kc135topboom explained that this "wreckage" seems to have been built of parts from two or more B-52s
