An interesting perspective of the Vietnam War from a Vietnamese viewpoint. Often distressing always thought provoking but a must visit if in Ho Chi Minh City

I went to the War Remnants Museum with an open mind. It was a very sobering and emotional experience. It lacks a bit o structure but generally you can work out what’s going on. My suggestion is to do some Vietnamese war research prior to going to the museum.

It’s a must see in Ho Chi Minh City

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.
