Trip Planner: Asia / Vietnam / Ho Chi Minh City / War Remnants Museum
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. Make War Remnants Museum a part of your Ho Chi Minh City vacation plans using our Ho Chi Minh City driving holiday website.

The museum is fine, with a lot of morbid descriptions of what happened in the war. Very very detailed and thorough. Many storeys in the building. I must warn all tourists though. There is(are) a(a few) coconut scam artists around the entrance or the area who would try to strike up a conversation with you and then open a coconut on the spot (as if they are being nice and offering to you for free) then charging you 300,000 dong for it! This is crazy and ridiculous! We hope that no more tourists fall trap to this anymore. 👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼 Very disappointed by the behaviour of these scam artists stationed around the area of tourist spots and soiling the image and reputation of Vietnam.
This place is a living remnant of the dead. Countless lives lost to pointless torture and tyranny of the Americans in 60s to 80s. The sheer amount of force in the form of tanks, planes, armored vehicles and missiles, bombs, bullets.. to silence people in their own homeland. It is simply horrible to walk through the museum and not fill humanity's failures at large through the destruction of war. Sadly because the war happened in recent years, a lot of photographic evidence is available and you will feel it in your gut when you see those horrid photos. After visiting this museum, the outlook on life and death is bound to change. And I hope the visit motivates you to be more kind, more caring and more sympathetic to other humans.
