I think the museum is a must see if you visit Saigon. Although being very one sided (anti-American), you get to see the harrowing pain and suffering the Vietnamese people were put through, and are still going through due to agent orange which is still effecting people today. A moving experience.

“Thought provoking”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

Obviously it provides a very one sided view of the war but the photographs are extraordinary and the story it tells is is horrific. All western Presidents and Prime Ministers should be forced to visit before they get involved in another foreign war.

I would advise anyone to give this place a miss unless they have an unhealthy interest in Man's inhumanity to Man. It is blatantly anti-American and if it is intended to have an effect on young Vietnamese judging from their behavior when we were there it did not seem to even catch their attention. They swarmed in with the air of being on a "jolly" laughing and messing about.

Firstly, American visitors may find the blatant propaganda a bit trying but victors get to write the history.
As a museum, nothing will bring home the sheer horror visited on the Vietnamese people more than the room on Agent Orange.
A chilling reminder of the terrible effects of war, well worth the $1.50 entry fee but not for the faint hearted.
