What people are saying:

A very good educational 4-5 level museum. Gives a really good history of the Vietnam War as everything was pretty detailed. And there are also recounts from various people involved during the war. However, maybe it was too detailed, it gets a little too boring with hefty amounts of reading.Not for fainted hearted though as some photos are a little bloody. Also, do note. it starts from the top level then down.

    Good Presentation of Historical Facts

    The museum is a must-visit in Saigon. It is a good presentation of historical facts of the Vietnam War, as well as a place to contemplate.

Additional Information

Introduction

The War Remnants Museum is made up of eight rooms that showcase different elements of the Vietnam War. Most of the exhibits cater to the war involving the American military. From photographs to reproductions of the famed "tiger cages" that once held prisoners of war, visitors can explore the different areas of this museum and learn about the intricacies of this historical conflict. Equipment used in the war is also available for viewing in a yard attached to the complex. Visitors should remain aware that the museum presents information from the Vietnamese Communist perspective, meaning nothing critical of the Viet Cong's war tactics is displayed.
