War Remnants Museum, Ho Chi Minh City Reviews

  • This is hard. You don't leave this museum smiling, and that's how it should be, but just fair warning. Also, for Americans and French tourists, remember that this is their history too and then can choose the phrasing as they please. Reading the other side of the history is important to balance what is taught or often not taught in the West, but fair warning that it is referred to as the War of US Aggression, and intentional phrasing could come off as inflammatory if you or your family served in the military. Much of this museum tells an unbiased perspective of the War, through photography of both sides of combat, and for any war or notable military buff the vehicles and weapons saved here are in excellent condition and very interesting. Remember, it's hard, but call it your duty to go and see, it's a part of world history and should not be forgotten so we may remember to avoid future war.

  • Hard to walk through. It's an emotional experience like the World War 2 museum in DC. Not much in a historical order which is slightly annoying, but it's still powerful. I wish there was more historical context to understand the warring sides and the impact here in comparison to the bordering countries as well. But it still gave so much insight. I think the Effects of Agent Orange exhibit is a bit too disturbing and can be passed through quickly or avoided completely and still get a full experience. It's upsetting that people who are victims walk around this museum asking for money. I can't write much more about that before getting into a long discussion on my thoughts. But just be forewarned they are there

  • I liked this place . The court yard with all the American war machines was very impressive . If you are weak hearted or offended by things easily the photos in the museum will bother you . I enjoyed seeing some pretty incredible photos from the war. The only thing I did not like was that a good portion of the descriptions behind the pictures are factually false . The government is trying to make the Americans look like pure animals when in fact a lot of the pictures of the killings were done by north and south Vietnamese to each other. And some artifacts had false stories behind it as well. Just keep that in mind as you walk through the halls. For those us who had father's in the war, keep that in mind .

  • Amazing museum that had me in tears. Powerful pictures (some disturbing) regarding the #Vietnam war. I didn't take pictures of those images I did see but there were some I couldn't even look at. Pictures of children and babies... It was extremely hard to take. I wasn't the only one in tears either. Again, amazing museum! So much information and artifacts on display. I was honored to witness this.

  • This is such a great way to find out about the atrocities that happened in Vietnam. It is horrific but honest and we really liked to see it. It was a big part of why i came to Vietnam. The history and the war. Is is such a beautiful land. This museum is very graphic.
