Many photos were documented and you would know how bad was it to those trapped in the war. Do pay a visit to this museum if you are in Ho Chi Minh City.

Museum is good but very crowdy. I really proud that government of USSR and USA citizens stop that mindless war in last century.

The exhibition was quite confronting but essential for us to be able to understand the mess that is war and the terrible consequences that follow on. The museum was well laid out and we spent nearly 4hrs here in AC which was nice.

How barbarian human can be to each others. How it is possible man can not learn anything from war earlier. This is a place everyone should visit, especially those who leads countries. -Tero-

We paid in VND. I don't recall seeing a USD option. There is an ATM right down the block on the same side of the street. I used it to get VND for the entrance fee.
