It was a lot of history to take in, especially when reading everything on the walls and looking at the pictures.
The documentary and photos posted are an eye opener. This is a must visit when you are in Ho Chi Minh. I hope people will realized that war only brings misery, cruelty and savagery. There are no winners.
The war museum is simple but makes you silent... It is a collection of pictures, posters and news articles were the Vietnam side of the Vietnam war is shown.

Starting from the outside area you have a wide range of aircraft and ground artillery used in the Vietnam War which may be studied at your leisure. After... More
Three air conditioned floors are dedicated to the realities of the Vietnam war. Tanks, airplanes, weapons, maps, uniforms, and medals were all interesting, but 80% of this museum is made up of photos. Large graphic photos (including the famous running "Napalm Girl") cover the walls with smaller versions of the same down low where it is easy to read the... More
