The War Remnants Museum provides a complete picture of the Vietnam war. It is not a pleasant or easy visit for someone from the United States, but it does fill in a great number of holes that our own historical education fails to provide. While there is some hyperbole, most of the information presented is factual and frightfully difficult to stomach and view. At the least, this museum should be a lesson for what should be avoided moving forward. Better still, learn from this place and heal the wounds.

While Vietnam War is a watershed in contemporary history, War Remnants Museum is the place to understand the Viet perspective. It provides a concise picture of the war, the sufferings of the local population and atrocities by Washington. The collection of photographs is loyal to history and can be disturbing for many. The anti-war message is way too evident and should be remembered by all.

We went there without expecting much and we taken back.
Spend some time seeing the artifacts and pictures ( some are quite disturbing) attributing to War crimes, many of the pictures are Raw, not a good idea to go after lunch.
Really worth and yes there are some fancy helicopters planes tanks and artillery on display also.

A must visit. The American education system is sorely lacking, and while it is a tough visit I think every traveler must see this

I went to this museum on my own, without a guide. The museum is only air conditioned on the second to forth floors. All the exhibits on the first floor are not air conditioned, so be prepared to wear something comfortable.

Most of the exhibits have English translations, however, there are a few without translations. Overall the museum gives a comprehensive overview of the Vietnamese government’s view of its fight for independence from the French and the Americans. There are many horrifying details of the conflict, so be warned that it is not a place to visit if you’re not ready for something like this.

The war is told from the Vietnamese perspective which is perfectly understandable and valid as this is their country. Outside there are tanks and planes, inside lots of photographs showing what happened with information in English and Vietnamese. You walk away thinking that war is pointless and all the suffering on both sides was a crazy waste of time and lives. After all this was a war about the fear of communism, nothing to do with freedom or democracy…

Entry fee ḏ40,000 and did not get a student discount (often got in Hanoi).

Museum tries to give an fair and realistic overview over the war and its aftermath. Shows documentation about cruelties and the dark side of war and what human beings are able to do to other humans.

1-3hrs at this museum is enough, an hour if you want to browse and maybe 3hrs if you want to read everything in depth. Sobering and informative.

It's a must visit place while you're in HCM City. It's actually very disturbing to know of all the atrocities and cruelty then USA wrecked on Vietnamese army and innocent citizens including women and children. I'm yet surprised, they don't hate Americans anymore
