A must see. Some would say that it is biased but probably is a better reflection of the realities of what went on than you get from Hollywood films. A great exhibition of photos from photographers killed during the conflict.

A very well presented museum although not for the feint hearted. Very graphic photos and descriptions of the tortures imposed during the American - Vietnam conflict. And to answer my own question, USA never agreed to the Geneva Convention at the time and also never declared war so couldn't be charged with war crimes. Weapons of mass destruction included Napalm, Agent Orange, Cluster Bombs, Nail Bombs etc etc. And the tortures included dropping Viet Cong soldiers from helicopters to their death. A great display of vehicles, planes and photos. Well worth a visit.

Museum was quite interesting and informative in the agent orange use and effects section. It was very one-sided however. One should view the information with this in mind.

The museum is full of war-crimes, atrocities committed by USA but I felt only one-sided view was emphasized against US although while talking to local citizens they appreciate USA more than other countries. I think the issues are Politically misguided.

Fascinating view of the US war in Vietnam, but the one sided reporting of events really detracts from the issue. Doesn't reflect the full facts, but important to go & see nonetheless.
