This place depicts the horrors that were inflicted on the Vietnamese people during the war with America. The most poignant part for me were the pictures drawn by children. It makes you wonder what makes one country inflict such atrocities on others.

So of course you go in here knowing that the US had a fight with Vietnam. But for most of us Americans, we never heard the story told from the Vietnamese perspective. Well, this is definitely the place for that. Enlightening, yes. Depressing, yes. This place has all the components. It is a definite MUST VISIT while here in HCMC. The war artifacts outside (helicopters, planes, rocket launchers, etc.) manage to bring home the horrors of that war; all that's missing are the men that had to do this to one another.

It is very informative and tells you a lot about the Vietnam war. The photos are motsly very irritating though, and you can feel that the whole atmosphere in the museum is tense and sad. There is almost no air conditioning and it can be very hot inside, so make sure you dress accordingly.
