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.

This is a must visit opens your eyes to Vietnamese history.Well presented with many photos and takes you through their life during the war more »
Not much of a museum person, but spent 3.5 hrs here (slow reader). If you're not a reader, take in the beginning explanation and then browse the hordes of pictures from myriad war correspondents. This is a story in pictures. Not a pleasant topic, but well done. Viewer discretion is advised, but they also do have a playroom to drop off the little kids
This is a top tourist destination. I would highly recommend this location to be the first to see while in the city. A short and pleasant walking distance from the tourist center hub, this is museum is humbling, interesting, and educational. I suggest to start with all of the outside attractions before moving inside. I would use 3-4 hours here to read and take in what you will see and learn.
