Create an itinerary including War Remnants Museum
War Remnants Museum delivers a somber account of the horrors of the Vietnam War and other wars of colonialist aggression that have plagued the Vietnamese people. The museum's exhibits may contain a heavy dose of one-sided anti-American sentiment, but they well represent residual American--and other foreign--weaponry and the destruction it wreaked. Look for the French guillotine used to execute prisoners and for the unexploded ordnance stored in a corner of the yard.

  • Very good museum to visit. Can be quite disturbing at points when you learn about agent orange and the terrible effects it has had. I mean no part of war is enjoyable but very big museum covering...

  • This place is a living remnant of the dead. Countless lives lost to pointless torture and tyranny of the Americans in 60s to 80s. The sheer amount of force in the form of tanks, planes, armored vehicles and missiles, bombs, bullets.. to silence people in their own homeland. It is simply horrible to walk through the museum and not fill humanity's failures at large through the destruction of war. Sadly because the war happened in recent years, a lot of photographic evidence is available and you will feel it in your gut when you see those horrid photos. After visiting this museum, the outlook on life and death is bound to change. And I hope the visit motivates you to be more kind, more caring and more sympathetic to other humans.
  • Excellent collection of artifacts, and incredible display of how brutal the war was. The photography section was an eye opener. I spent over 4 hours in the museum. I'd suggest you allocate a minimum of 2 hours for the museum. Parking is available on the location itself. There's also a small cafe inside the museum.
  • Excellent museum! Best one I've been to in Vietnam. Everything is well translated into English and detailed to help you understand. The layout of the museum begins on the top floor and the rooms are numbered for you to follow. The photography exhibition is stunning! There are graphic pictures that may be upsetting for some adults or kids. But it is a MUST SEE. So much to see, read and learn. Price was 40k per ticket at the gate, incredibly reasonable.
  • It was a great way to learn about Vietnam's side in the past war. The museum was well organized. It is very spacious and had 10 exhibits when we visited. We visited on a Thursday afternoon. It wasn't crowded. The price of the tickets were reasonable
  • Spend almost 3 hours to carefully read and see everything exhibited here. Some of the photos shown is not for people with weak heart :( I shed a tears since I imagined what happen in the past. This place is really great for you to know more about history. Should put this on your list when you went to Ho Chi Minh. Ticket is only 40k VND and they have clear explanation in English. You can also use the audio guide available there.
