A truly powerful, brutally honest, and generally informative look at the Vietnam War. A must-see in Ho Chi Minh. Nothing is more precious than independence and liberty. One can only hope the American government eventually learns from its many, many atrocities.

It's a walk to the past, a reminder of why peace is so important. There are many graphic photos on the 2nd floor so parents should be wary of. There are audio guides in many languages.

Heavy. Human's abuse of each other is tear jerking
Very well presented and interesting. Nice to see personal accounts during the Vietnam War.
wish I had more time here
A memorable experience
It is good to know the true things. The pictures about the war really make me feel sad.

Increíble, muy fuerte!
Gruesome but good historical museum. It is one sided but does show how they also treated each other
I really like the place. everything is written and photographed what truly happened during the war. so sad to see devastation of the war.
Very important place to visit in Vietnam. You will learn a lot about the Vietnam war. How they came under the attack, how they built their defence with the bare minimum means at their disposal, you will know about the ugly agent Orange, its effects on victims. You will learn about how the mighty powers attacked a poor country, and how the Vietnamese put on a brave defence and fought for so many years.

Very fascinating place, had all kinds of stuff including some non-kid friendly photos of the war, very historical!
Super interessant und total berührend!
Ikke meget at skrive om. Det er en af det 20 århundredes vigtigste skamstøtte, som dokumenteres her. Og det bliver det så, også i den grad.
Was ok cool planes tanks
Good experience. Will come back again says it all
Learned much and feel the Vietnamese during the American and Vietnam war

Rich history. A must see place to learn the atrocities of war. A lot of nice photos ops as well. Highly recommended. Will only take 2-3 hours.
Great environment. Have a cafeteria to take a break after a long walk and have a snack

Fantastic way to understand the history of the Vietnam war, with stories told by different people involved. Lots of it pretty harrowing and disturbing. It was very disappointing to see how badly fellow humans treat each other.

그 해설까지 같이 하면 좋아요 그게 없다면 사진만 대충 봐서 이십분정도 걸렸겠지만 해설을 들으면서 도니 한시간 좀 넘게걸린것 같네용
Thiiiiis place can be a bit overwhelming but if you want to learn about the Vietnam war, this should be on your list. Other attractions in the city is real close to this place.

You should be came here ….
Harrowing is the only word to describe what you'll see. If you come to Saigon, you need to visit the war museum. You will get to see the war from another point of view, and it's truly eye-opening. An absolute must-see if you're here.
Feel sad..USA very brutal
Grim but necessary would sum up my feelings about this museum. After nearly three weeks of enjoying the warmth, hospitality, efficiency and fun of Vietnam, we felt it was important to learn more about this period of its history, even if the Vietnamese don't want to be defined by this. It is pretty graphic in its displays, models, images and descriptions and there were ties when I had to step out of the room to take a breather but I wouldn't have missed it.
Pretty harrowing but essential viewing is you want to have any idea about the recent history of Vietnam. You'll need 1 to 2 hours and try to follow the numbered route to make it make more sense. It's quite a sombre place too, so try not to dress like a western idiot!
On apprend beaucoup de chose Comme l'agent orange Photo plutot trash
Very interesting museum, audio guide 100% the cost.
Buen lugar, algunas imágenes muy fuertes.
Let me share my impressions of the War Remnants Museum in Ho Chi Minh City. This museum is an essential stop for those who seek to understand history in its raw, unfiltered form, and I can wholeheartedly say that it is 100% worth visiting. During my time at the museum, I delved into history and explored the less-discussed side of the coin—the treatment of prisoners, various torture techniques, and the enduring impact of Agent Orange on the population, even years after the war's end. For those with sensitive hearts, be prepared for images and video presentations that will deeply affect you. It's an emotional experience that will leave you overwhelmed by the shocking images and stories. The museum also houses an impressive collection of war artifacts, including airplanes, tanks, helicopters, and armed vehicles, providing a tangible connection to the past. The profound lesson I took away from my visit is that there is simply no place for wars in our world. Every nation should strive for prosperity and health, and conflicts should be resolved through economic support and planning rather than violence. In short, the War Remnants Museum is a must-visit for those who are mature enough to confront the harsh realities of history. It serves as a powerful reminder of the importance of peace and the need to work towards a world where wars are a thing of the past. ✌️ #WarRemnantsMuseum #HistoryUnfiltered Hãy để tôi chia sẻ cảm nhận của mình về Bảo tàng Tưởng niệm Chiến tranh tại thành phố Hồ Chí Minh. Bảo tàng này là một điểm dừng chân quan trọng đối với những người muốn hiểu về lịch sử dưới dạng nguyên bản, chưa qua bất kỳ "lọc lời" nào, và tôi có thể tận hưởng một cách toàn tâm toàn ý rằng đó là một nơi xứng đáng để thăm. Trong thời gian ở bảo tàng, tôi đã nghiên cứu lịch sử và khám phá mặt khác của cuộc chiến - cách đối xử với tù binh, các kỹ thuật tra tấn khác nhau và tác động kéo dài của Chất độc Da cam đối với dân số, ngay cả sau nhiều năm kết thúc chiến tranh. Đối với những người có trái tim nhạy cảm, hãy chuẩn bị cho những hình ảnh và bài thuyết trình video sẽ ảnh hưởng mạnh mẽ đến bạn. Đó là một trải nghiệm đầy cảm xúc sẽ khiến bạn choáng ngợp trước những hình ảnh và câu chuyện đáng kinh ngạc. Bảo tàng cũng sở hữu một bộ sưu tập đáng ngạc nhiên về các di tích chiến tranh, bao gồm máy bay, xe tăng, trực thăng và xe quân sự, mang đến một liên kết cụ thể với quá khứ. Bài học sâu sắc mà tôi rút ra từ chuyến thăm của mình là rằng không có chỗ cho chiến tranh trong thế giới của chúng ta. Mọi quốc gia nên phấn đấu vì sự thịnh vượng và sức khỏe, và các xung đột nên được giải quyết thông qua hỗ trợ kinh tế và kế hoạch hơn là bằng bạo lực. Tóm lại, Bảo tàng Tưởng niệm Chiến tranh là một điểm đến không thể bỏ lỡ đối với những người đã đủ trưởng thành để đối mặt với thực tế khắc nghiệt của lịch sử. Nó là một lời nhắc mạnh mẽ về tầm quan trọng của hòa bình và sự cần thiết phải làm việc để xây dựng một thế giới mà chiến tranh đã trở thành quá khứ. ✌️ #BảoTàngTưởngNiệmChiếnTranh #LịchSửChưaLọcLời
베트남전 당시 미국 정보부 건물에 만들어진 박물관입니다. 헐리우드 영화를 통해 미국 관점에서의 베트남전에 익숙해져 있는 사람들에게 베트남사람들의 관점에서 베트남전은 어떠한 의미였는지 생각하게 됩니다. 다소 잔인하고 끔찍한 사진들도 있어서 아이들과 방문할 경우에는 유의할 필요가 있습니다.

A shocking experience but a must!
Must see. Great experience. After going there we wanted to watch movies about the Vietnam war.
Knowing about history
Lugar para termos a certeza de que a guerra é a maior estupidez da humanidade
전쟁은 일어나서도 안되는 비극입니다 무거운 마음으로 보고 왔습니다
