I love museums. My wife puts up with me, I think, on some of these visits. Sometimes she learns something she didn't know, or fills me in on additional information (or translates some of the plaques or writings). No matter what, I feel enriched by...More

This museum is a must visit on a trip to Vietnam. You will virtually feel the war which had taken place between USA & Vietnam. It shows how the innocent Vietnamese people suffered. Also there are displays of abandoned tanks, helicopters of US Army.

This is a good enough museum for a visit, but I would not recommend planning a visit specially for it; only if it is around the vicinity of other things you'd like to see. Some somewhat interesting artefacts housed in a gorgeous colonial building. The...More

Disjoined exhibits - very little meaningful narrative and most of the artefacts are a little off-beat. Didn't even really hit the 'quirky' mark - just seemed tired. We were in and out in 20 minutes....

Very good morning spent at the Museum. Leave yourself plenty of time to see everything as since parts are like a maze.

Better just to come for admiring the architecture here as the museum and its contents are terrible. More of the same in terms of propaganda, and revised history. It's unfortunate that a country which has seen so much war could so utterly botch the entire...More

Hi Guys, Need your reco in HCMC for 4D3N with 4A1C. I have previously been to Hanoi and Halong Bay (Love Halong Bay but hate the ride) For HCMC, these are the places that I have plan for visiting.

War Remnants Museum, Mekong, Cu Chi tunnels, Ben Thanh Market, Bitexco Financial Tower, Cao Dai Temple, Emperor Jade Pagoda, Ho Chi...More
