Opened in 1975, just a few months after the liberation, the War Remnants Museum is one of the most popular attractions in the city. Laid out in 8 themed rooms are different aspects of the war from imprisonment, to chemical warfare and military might.

In the grounds there are military equipment, weaponry and aircraft on display including fighter planes, helicopters and tanks.

Some of the exhibits are shockingly gruesome, explicit photos and prisoner cages detail a war-torn history. This is the story of the Vietnam War told from the other side which mixes the atrocities of war with the reality of military hardware.

Practical Info

Located in District 3 but still relatively central; walkable from Ben Thanh market - only a couple of blocks behind the Reunification Palace.

This exhibition shows some of the true horrors of the Vietnam War, a one-sided account perhaps but still captivating and poignant.
