War Remnants Museum delivers a somber account of the horrors of the Vietnam War and other wars of colonialist aggression that have plagued the Vietnamese people. The museum's exhibits may contain a heavy dose of one-sided anti-American sentiment, but they well represent residual American--and other foreign--weaponry and the destruction it wreaked. Look for the French guillotine used to execute prisoners and for the unexploded ordnance stored in a corner of the yard. With our online itinerary creator, Ho Chi Minh City attractions like War Remnants Museum can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

War Remnants Museum Reviews
I grew up only hearing one side of the Vietnam war and this museum gives a view from the other side. Well presented and at times chilling. Well worth a visit if you are in Ho Chi Minh City. more »
A very well documented museum of a war which we lived day by day. Probably a bit onesided but a good memorial of a senseless, bloody war more »
Not much of a museum person, but spent 3.5 hrs here (slow reader). If you're not a reader, take in the beginning explanation and then browse the hordes of pictures from myriad war correspondents. This is a story in pictures. Not a pleasant topic, but well done. Viewer discretion is advised, but they also do have a playroom to drop off the little kids
This is a top tourist destination. I would highly recommend this location to be the first to see while in the city. A short and pleasant walking distance from the tourist center hub, this is museum is humbling, interesting, and educational. I suggest to start with all of the outside attractions before moving inside. I would use 3-4 hours here to read and take in what you will see and learn.
