War Remnants Museum Ho Chi Minh City

War Remnants Museum

This War Remnants Museum certainly isn’t for the faint hearted but the depictions of the brutal occurrences during the infamous Vietnam war, are undeniable.

It was a huge eye-opener for us in regards to the harsh realities of what really went on during the war. Greeted at the entry gates by US armoured vehicles, bombs and infantry weapons, the scene was set for the uncut truths that lay ahead.

In the court yard area, rooms or cells display the inhumane means adopted to hold prisoners (‘tiger cages’), and some of the French mechanisms used at the time such as the guillotine. These scenes leave very little to the imagination and make the harsh realities very feasible in one’s mind.

Inside the Museum

As you move through the museum itself, it is laid out in very distinct sections. Some are artefact based while others are heart-breaking exhibitions of photographs taken during the harrowing days of the war from the ground.

What stuck with me most from our visit, was the images of the innocent children maimed by the dropping of Agent Orange onto Vietnamese soil. It would be advised to stay a few steps ahead of children during this tour due to the explicit nature of the material and perhaps be ready to skip past certain elements if necessary.


In conclusion The trip was a very interesting morning, although tragic it was a great insight as to what happened and we found it extremely interesting as it would of been something I wasn’t truly knowledgeable about.
