We wanted to visit the Center during our Cu Chi Tunnels Tour, however according to our guide, it is closed to visitors because the government took it over.

We visited here after we went to the Cu Chi Tunnels and it was so worth the stop. It seemed like we were the only ones there so enjoyed a private tour. Definitely stop here if you are going to Cu Chi.
