This is how war with the US descended on the common folks in Vietnam. Their forests were defoliated (sprayed with toxic chemicals like agent orange for instance) their once peaceful, rustic villages have become a warzone, even their unborn children suffered from abnormalities due to their exposure to high levels of toxicity. Such is the story objectively documented in photos, memorabilia, artillery items, and war machines from the war. This is a disturbing and inconvenient truth about the Vietnam war that most of us only knew from books, movies and productions starring G.I. Joe. It will break your heart, but it will open your eyes.

Went to the museum with my girlfriend and we were both impressed by all the pictures showing the horrors of the Vietnam war. The museum is divided in different sections / exhibitions covering a lot of the horror which is part of war. Keep in mind that the museum is one sided, portraying the US as the enemy, but for us, that was no problem at all.

Of course, this museum highlights the war. It's very depressing, so don't attend if you want to be in a less than happy mood. Also, there's many panhandler there, which isn't much more supportive.
