I cannot say much about this place, as it was difficult to look at the photographs of the American War and realise what happened to the Vietnamese people. It is definitely a must-see.

A small collection of photos and images with no depth to the story of the history of the build-up of the war and its development. Full of propaganda and ridiculous english translations and spelling mistakes. Really little imagination in the exhibits and layout - 4 floors of the same stuff. Outside a ramshackle collection of war machines..is that really all that was salvagable! Needs a good (unbiased) short documentary which would help as intro to photos in the galleries. Spent no more than 40 mins here...did I miss something??

This was a visit to see the Vietnamese side of the war, nice little selection of old US military vehicles and odds and ends outside. Inside ,obviously very one sided opinions ,but a breath of fresh air on the top floor when they talk ,and show the peace between the 2 nations since the conflict. The pictures are very graphic so I would not recommend taking smaller children.
