We were looking forward to go to the War Remnants Museum and what an eye opening experience we had. Really sad and gut-wrenching to learn the history and to understand what the Vietnamese people had to go through. Gives your time in Vietnam a whole different perspective.

This excellent museum lets its photographs and exhibits illustrate the effects of this seventeen year war on ordinary Vietnamese people. Particularly moving is the exhibition of civilian casualties from napalm attacks. Time your visit to avoid lunch. The museum closes from 12-1330.

Tick the box and take a look at this fascinating museum if you have the time whilst in Saigon. The entry fee is small for what you get in return and would be used for the upkeep of the property which is immaculate inside and outside. This is a very busy place so allow about 2.5 hours to explore the... More

Had to pay the entrance for 20k VND. Can see all the war remnants and the taste of local cultures, from old civilizations. It's not bad at all, since it's just along the way going to Notre Dame Basilica.

If you do nothing else, this is a must do when in Ho Chi Min City. Having lived through the Vietnam/American war, I had only seen one side of it - through western eyes. I must say that having been to the museum it brought home to me the intense suffering these wonderful people lived through as America tried to... More

Lots of reading, and is a bit one sided when talking about the war. However very informative and shows some of the atrocities that were suffered by both sides during the war. Check times for when can go. All air con inside so is quite pleasant temperature wise
