"War Museum,HCMC" Vietnam Things to Do Tip by manil51

Vietnam Things to Do: 749 reviews and 1,152 photos

 
 

This museum exhibit the ugly war crimes. Photographs of the famous My Lai massacre, human embryos, genetically deformed babies and innocent civilians being tortured can be seen on display. An array of US armored vehicles, artillery pieces, bombs and infantry weapons are displayed in the courtyard. You can also see a guillotine used by the French to de itate troublemakers in the riots of the 1920s and a model of the famous tiger cages used by the South Vietnamese to house VC prisoners on Con Son island. The War Museum basically reveals a different side of the stories about wars - the innocent victims of modern warfare.
