This museum tells the story of photographers and the pictures they took in the Vietnam war. Defoliants, gas, etc contributed to disabilities for all parties involved for up to 3 generations. What was gained? Nothing.

I would highly recommend the museum to anyone visiting Ho Chi Minh City as it provides important context to the city and Vietnam in general. Parts of it are not suitable for children, though. Not a cheerful day out.

Such an eye opening experience for a ridiculously cheap price. The photographic evidence of agent orange and the chemical warfare used was moving. A must do in Ho Chi Minh!

Visiting this Museum underscore my firm belief that war is totally evil for the damage it does to people (mostly innocent) and the destruction of a country's infrastructure. The irony of all this is that like many similar events in history, many of these gruesomeness...More

A very interesting museum, packed with photos and graphic representations of The Vietnam War, viewed from the Vietnamese side. As a Westerner it was very interesting to see and pulled no punches when showing the impact on the civilisation of Vietnam. Not a museum for...More

Whether you think US intervention is a good thing or an act of aggression, there is no doubt that war is monstrous, and many of the exhibits make for very uncomfortable viewing but contain vital information of the horrors of war. From the sanitisation and...More

Extremely interesting and a must see for Saigon- perhaps the museum would benefit from better chronology or sign posts!

I agree, locals don’t speak English that well. Best is to rely on google map. There’s always tourists walking around and they can be helpful. There’s also GRAB ... equivalent to UBER. You can download the app and use it to... More

We paid in VND. I don't recall seeing a USD option. There is an ATM right down the block on the same side of the street. I used it to get VND for the entrance fee.
