This is a must-see. I left, trying to hold rage tears: who can imagine that we can do all those things to other human beings, in their own country, in the name of "freedom"?..

This was not only nice to see, but re-affirms something that tourists from the West should really understand history and consider it when travelling and speaking with others.

Me and a friend were backpacking Asia and had been to many war museums through Asia. We were unsure if we wanted to do another, we were not disappointed. By far the most interesting war museum in Vietnam!

As an American, I was concerned about how we might be viewed at the museum. My concerns were unfounded. Overall, it is a very eye opening experience. Hard to absorb some of the atrocities but it gave me respect for this simple country of kind people.

Walking thru the exhibits makes one realise that we humans are not exactly the most civilised creatures on earth.

The cruelty inflicted to each other in the name of a “just cause” cannot, in my mind ever be justified.

A poignant reminder to us that whilst living peacefully together can be a challenge, we must never give up on that goal.

Brutal. A timely reminder of the horrors of war. Very well made and very engaging exposition. Hard to see but well worthwhile

DO NOT PURCHASE FROM THIS TOUR OPERATOR!!!!

I purchased a tour for 2 destinations (War Remnants & Cu Chi Tunnels). Twelve hours before the start of the tour (which was less than 24 hours notice which cancelled out my option to get a refund) I was notified that the tour I paid for would not be provided. They stated only half of the tour would be given. They provided an address to meet for the other part of the tour, I went to this address and it was only a partial address missing the building letter (example A B C D E F) so I was not able to locate this tour operator. I believe this is a scam operation. I have contacted Viator multiple times and was told they would provide a refund but a later message said they would not be refunding my money and it was “a final decision”. They advertised a service they did not provide.
