Mainly a photografic exibition narrating the history of the pernicious and highly unfair Vietnamese war supported by US.There is no other point of view for this tragedy of Vietnamese people who suffer the consequences until today.

It looks simple with war machines parked around. Take a look at popular killing machines. Building exibits large collection of war photos, paintings, artifacts, testiomonials, Agent Orange potrayed well to move the strongest minds. Open from 7.30-12 & later 1.30 - 5pm. Must see, how the locals suffered during the war -unimaginable.

Three story of exhibitions with one outdoor area showing imprisonment conditions and the entrance are shows vehicles used during the war.

The exhibitions are full of documentary photos, giving you this tragic feeling from the war itself and the victim of biological chemical they used, called the orange agent, that it affects the children of the exposed person.

The museum is within walking distance to Reunification Palace. If you have time constrain, I would suggest to go to this museum instead of the palace.

Opening hour: 7.30 am to 12 pm; 1.30 pm to 5 pm.
Monday to Sunday

If you want to be depressed go here. Mainly photographic and pretty biased. Preferred the Reunification Palace

I walked away being incredibly educated about the history of Vietnam after going through this museum. Some examples included 3-d displays of the war fields and how Vietnam took control from the French, recreated makeshift camps in the jungles, vintage film footage and displays of remnant war planes and weapons, this place is not to be missed for history buffs! Even for someone who doesn't appreciate war films and memorabilia, I left much more informed and in awe of all the tragedies and triumphs that have shaped the Vietnamese people for what they are today.
