This is a must do for everyone. The museum is excellent with detailed exhibits and lots of information in Vietnamese, English and Mandarin. There are indoor and outdoor exhibits so be sure to explore all of them. We spent almost 4 hours here. We walked to the museum from our hotel so weren’t part of a tour.

Initial communication was positive and they confirmed my booking via WhatsApp. The driver was waiting with my name on a sign. However, he dropped me off at the wrong hotel which felt like a sketchy location. Then he had me get back in and took me to the correct hotel but dropped me off around the corner from the actual entrance.

I had thought the booking was for round trip because that is what the TripAdvisor booking tool had me input. However when I sent a WhatsApp message the night before my expected pickup asking for details and timing on my return trip to the airport, they read the message hours before responding and finally responded when I was already in a Grab car service.

I’d recommend skipping pre-booking a car and just use the Grab app which is the same as Uber. Much less expensive and ultimately easier especially with n the return to the airport.

There is so much to see here. I wasn't in the Vietnam War. I'm a history buff. I followed news reports on that war. But seeing all the exhibits here took my knowledge to a whole other level. You don't need a military background to appreciate what's here. But keep in mind that this museum is from our former enemy's point of view.

Went here with a tour group I'm travelling Vietnam with. We spent just over an hour here, but I reckon I could have spent longer.
Whilst I have some knowledge of the Vietnam War, there were some aspects I knew little about - particularly the extent and impact of Agent Orange.

It is a heart breaking museum, but worth visiting. The Vietnam war is presented from one side only. The horrible things that happened to the people of Vietnam are unforgivable.

We had an hour scheduled to visit the war museum and ended up staying for two hours, which could have been longer. Highly educational and emotive.

A very eye opening and emotional experience. Shows the perspective from the Vietnamese. We got an audio tape which explained everything well. I nearly cried because of how sad and confronting it was but very deep appreciation and respect for the Vietnamese soldiers and people.

It's a very different kind of museum, focusing as it does on the brutality of war. It's told from the North Vietnamese perspective so gives a very different perspective than news reports in the West gave at the time. But a lot of the photographs are not for the faint hearted - death, injury,torture and the effects of Agent Orange.
