This museum focuses on the 'American War' as the Vietnamese refer to it. Over 17 years of some of the most horrendous and barbaric activity in recent memory. Whist its' natural to expect this is a very Vietnamese view of the war there are many facets which have equal weight whichever side you were/are on.
It's great that new generations can come and see what the past generation of politicians and generals did to ensure thousands of lives were either lost or permanently damaged. The day we visited there were many visitors under the age of 20 also visiting.
The section of war correspondent's photographs was particularly moving.
If you go prepared to be shocked as there are some very harrowing images on display. The agent orange section is very upsetting.
My hope is that this museum will encourage people to talk about this time in world history and to encourage us to never again allow such tragic and barbaric events to occur.
