This museum is a must to visit. It's tells the story of a long war with photos and accompanied texts. I was quite overwhelmed after the visit.

We went after 2pm. The main building has a/c and was well laid out with a pictorial view of the conflict in which the US was involved. Many visitors were visibly shaken by some of the harrowing displays. The top floor with the indo-french conflict was closed when we visited. For an easier visit I suggest avoiding busy mid day.

I'm not really into war stuff, but I enjoyed the visit here. Lots of pictures, some very graphic. Bad time in history, in my view. Not expensive, easy self-tour.

My title reflects the emotional pain associated with a visit to this museum. It is the Vietnam War from the perspective of the Vietnamese people. However, it also highlights all the turmoil going on in the US and its impact on the rest of the world. There are many pictures, most of which are hard to look at. However, it... More

I visited the museum as a part of city tour, so we only had one hour dedicated to the museum. I could have easily spent more time here. Some of the exhibitions are pretty graphic so I might not bring young children here.

I thought the visit worthwhile but be prepared to see displays highlighting B-52 bombing, My Lai massacre, Agent Orange etc. That these events occurred is not disputed and so I did not find them offensive although some might. There is also a prison exhibit and displays of US military equipment.

This place really got to me. I felt with vietnam and the wars theyve been through. Good pictures and good exhibitions. It may only show theyre side of the story though, but it does not change all they cruelty that happened during the us war here.

Anybody visiting Ho Chi Minh has to go here. It really is a staggering insight into the Vietnam war. How they fought the US military is shown here. There is also an incredible array of military hardware ranging from tanks,helicopters,aeroplanes and bombs. You can easily spend half a day here.
