28 Vo Van Tan St., ward 6, D3

Although somewhat gruesome and a bit of a one-sided presentation, the War Remnants Museum can’t be ignored. It teaches an important part of  Vietnamese history: the American War in Vietnam and of what the people of Vietnam had to endure only a few decades ago.

Besides the display of military equipment outside, there are various exhibitions inside. We found ‘Requiem’ (on the third floor) the most impressive. It shows the work of international correspondents who died in action in the Vietnam War.

On the left side of the museum, you’ll find a re-creation of the prisons used in the 20th century. Note that they are shocking and not suitable for young or sensitive eyes.
