An early version of this museum, managed by the government of Ho Chi Minh City, opened on September 4, 1975. It has exhibits from the First Indochina War and the Vietnam War. The War Remnants Museum is nowadays one of Vietnam’s most prominent museums, receiving roughly 500,000 visitors every year.

Many tourists, particularly those from the West, have made the trip to the museum to study the Vietnam War, a conflict with significant political ramifications in the history of the contemporary world. They are interested in learning how Vietnam was able to decisively defeat the US and what happened thereafter.

Opening hours: 07:30 – 17:00
