You have to see this part of vietnam to understand how Vietnamese is winner in war, debate France, American, and China. It is a really good view from the people during the vietnam war and not only the "American" side of the story.

The War Museum is extremely difficult to describe. It is very confronting but absolutely a must see. It is heart breaking and I was not the only person in the room crying. We took our children (7,8 and 11) and whilst it was a good experience for them and I am glad we took them there were definitely sections we didn't allow them to see because it was too much for their young minds and eyes to process. A trip to Ho Chi Minh is not complete without going but prepare for the impact of may have on you.

Before I came, I was not sure about what this museum was all about. But it turned out to be one of the most instructive session where I learnt about the Vietnam war. This was, it could be said, the beginning (1954-75) phase of rising American imperialistic interventions round the world. Remarkably, the museum was opened soon after the American defeat. Of course, much of the suffering, pain and atrocities were slowly revealed over the years. I hope everyone, especially Americans, who saw these, would learn the right lessons from the past. My thoughts and prayers are with those who suffered because of the war.

War museum depicts the devastation caused by the B-52 bombers & the massive loss of people & property. But the. Vietnamese have come a long way since then primarily due to their loyalty to their country & the hard work put in by them !

I went with basic knowledge of the Vietnam War and also that the American veterans who participated in the war had suffered from PSPT.

After a visit to the museum it does make real sense that the horrors of the war and the sufferings of people who went through it was indescribable.

The visit to the outdoor exhibit which shows the torment of the tortures left me goosebumps there and even when I am writing this review.

A good 2 hours to the museum is recommended to appreciate the content that the museum wishes to convey!
