Very interesting view of the war from the Vietnamese point of view, unfortunately we didnt get to see to the end as they rang a bell at 12 to close it and we were all ushered out. Well worth a visit

“War Remnant Museum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2012

Lots of exhibits of US military equipment. A little slanted in the propaganda side, but generally factually correct from a one sided point of view.

“just ok”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2012

Pretty one sided look at the vietnam war as you could expect. Gone as far as calling it the american war and referring to the south vietnamese government of the period as a puppet regime. I found this common throughout my travels in vietnam

Few tanks and planes and stuff outside. Inside was mostly just pictures and storyboards etc.

Entry is cheap at about 15000VND or $0.75US

“Fascinating and shocking”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2012

A wholly skewed view of the war..but the camera does not lie about the devastation to human life so this is as essential place to visit to understand the preavaling politics. Not suitable for under 12 years of age.

“A significant part of history you can see and touch!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2012 via mobile

A must stop when your in HCMC, for 20,000 VND.. $1.00
A history lesson one will never forget as long as you take the time to read and look at the photos and observe the salvaged items on display closely. You have a great sense afterwards of what war does and the consequences!
