The War Remnants Museum is a war museum at 28 Vo Van Tan, in District 3, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. It contains exhibits relating to the Vietnam War and the first Indochina War involving the French colonialists. . Visiting the museum was like a blast from the past wherby you’ll learn to understand the tons of real time photographs of the sad misadventures of Americans in the Vietnamese war. Very moving experience indeed.
I could say that it’s an incredible exhibition but it’s more shocking becau If you’re in Ho Chi Minh city you can’t miss going to this museum. If you are sensitive to this kind of content, you should think twice before going as it shows all the content related to the Vietnam War. An exhibition that will make you realize the cathastrophic effect war and how it damage Vietnam most especially its people for 19.5 long years.
An amazing place to see the history of Vietnam. The effects that the war had on the country and how they have been building their lives back up again.
The museum is somewhat small, but it has some very interesting exhibits. The captured American aircraft and tanks outside are cool to look at. I've been to several Vietnam war museums in this country, and many are straight up propaganda. This one isn't. It's actually fairly subjective. And the Agent Orange exhibit was very powerful.An absolute must visit in Saigon. Parts of the museum feel a bit “propaganda-y”, but the Agent Orange exhibit is an absolutely important piece of history that everyone should see. It is also informative, heartbreaking, and highlights the resilience of the Vietnamese people. I will never forget the exhibit and will always remember the shame felt as an American in the museum.
A very good educational 4-5 level museum. Gives a really good history of the Vietnam War as everything was pretty detailed. And there are also recounts from various people involved during the war. However, maybe it was too detailed, it gets a little too boring with hefty amounts of reading.Not for fainted hearted though as some photos are a little bloody. Also, do note. it starts from the top level then down.
The Museum of War Relics, originally named Ruan Bicheng (1890-1969), was renamed Ruan Patriotic after participating in the revolution and Ho Chi Minh in the early 1940s. Here is a moving story - "Ruan Patriotic was arrested and sentenced to death by reactionary forces when he was engaged in revolutionary activities in China. Before the execution, Ho Chi Ming, a Chinese friend in prison, gave Ruan Patriotic a chance to get out of prison and died calmly, which unlocked Jiaolong and replayed Yunyu. When Ruan Patriotic returned to Vietnam, he changed his name to Ho Chi Minh to commemorate the rebirth of Chinese comrades. In mid-December 1924, Ho Chi Ming's alias Li Rui came to Guangzhou, China, from the Soviet Union. Vietnam Youth Training Course is held in Guangzhou, and is the main lecturer. Vietnam Youth Comrade Association was founded. Its leading core is the Communist League. It publishes "Youth Weekly" as an organ newspaper. He also participated in the establishment of the East Asian Federation of Repressed Nationalities, including the Vietnam Branch. His lectures at various training classes in Guangzhou were published by the Propaganda Department of the East Asian Federation of Repressed Nationalities. After the outbreak of World War II, Ho Chi Ming came to Guilin and other areas in southern China under the pseudonym of Hu Guang. At the end of December 1940, he returned to the Vietnam-China border and held a cadre training course. On August 13, 1942, he went to China under the pseudonym of Ho Chi Minh and contacted with Vietnamese anti-Japanese revolutionary forces. He was arrested by Chiang Kai-shek's local government just after arriving in Jingxi County, Guangxi Province. Since then, he has been imprisoned for 13 months in 18 prisons in 13 counties in various parts of Guangxi. He has suffered from torture, food and clothing, lost his teeth, grey hair and haggard face. He has written more than 100 poems. He was released from Liuzhou Prison on September 10, 1943.
The Museum of War Heritage is an indispensable part of the trip to Ho Chi Minh. When I went to Ho Chi Minh City, I saw a vibrant and rapidly developing Vietnam, but only when I visited the Museum of War Relics did I know the trauma caused by the war in Vietnam. Even now, there are countless descendants of victims who have suffered tremendous trauma. The War Museum has three floors. There are also some weapons exhibits, but I can't understand weapons, focusing on pictures and texts. The first floor is about the resistance of American soldiers to the Vietnam War and Vietnam's resistance to the Vietnam War supported by various countries, including China. The second floor uses pictures to show the horrible and indiscriminate burning and killing of ordinary people by the US military. Not only with guns, but also with biochemical weapon Orange Agent-dioxin, which has caused physical distortion to millions of Vietnamese people, and even changed genes, and inherited them to the next generation. These distorted pictures are shocking. There is a room next door, and several victims of Orange Agent are doing hand-made selling. The wall was painted by the children of the victims of Orange Agent. They are incomplete, but peaceful, I can hold back the tears. The third floor is the work of war reporters. It shows the battlefield and battlefield life, as well as the return visits to the soldiers and Vietnamese people after the war. A string of data was taken: for the benefit of the United States, the United States dropped 4246,000 tons of artillery shells on Vietnam in 1965-1973, 26 times as many as the United States dropped on Japan in the Pacific campaign - including 16,1425 tons of atomic bombs. Peace is not easy. Take history as a mirror.
The Vietnam War Memorial in Ho Chi Minh City is surrounded by a series of military aircraft and tanks used by the U.S. military, while the darkness of the Vietnam War is unknown inside. A large number of valuable photographs of war reporters were visited by the public, which truly restored the tragedy of the war at that time, and was deeply shocked! Although it's a limited museum, it allows you to stop and read carefully and be attracted by the story behind each photo. There's about an hour's closing time every noon. Maybe it's the staff's lunch break.
Actually, it is the same way that some red museums in China adopt. But what impressed me most was the documentary on the second floor, about an American veteran's "atonement" trip to Vietnam; besides, 90 (%) foreigners were in the museum, which touched me very much. There were similar events and museums in China. Why did you go to this museum? You can see many pictures of the time when the U.S. army invaded Vietnam and military force? It takes a lot of time for many people to stay in this museum, because every picture is introduced and it takes a lot of time to finish. However, if you like to see the museum and look at the past history, this is also quite suitable for you. How many foreigners do Chinese students really understand when they go to red education? It must be said that Vietnam is superior to China in seeking the sympathy and understanding of foreigners and propaganda.
