War Remnants Museum, Ho Chi Minh City: 106 reviews and 220 photos
The War Remnants museum (Nha Trung Bay Toi Ac Chien Tranh Xam) is definitely the must-see museum in Ho Chi Min, to learn a bit more about the atrocities commited in one of the bloodiest wars ever.
In the courtyard you can see several captured US planes, tanks and helicopters, as well as bombs, including the huge B52. Then there are two smaller pavillions, one explaining which foreign armies were in Vietnam and where they were located, and the other dedicated to the Vietnam peaace movements all over the world.
The rest of the museum, which is the main building exhibition and the torture chambers on the left, is a huge chamber of horrors... torture tools, people burned by napalm, deformed phoetuses, shocking photos and a replica of a prison cell. Definitely a tough visit...
The museum is open daily 7:30-11:45 and 1:30-5:15, and the price (2007) was 15000 dongs.
Address: 28 Vo Van Tan St
Directions: In the 3rd district
