Although from this blog, we prefer to focus on the present of Vietnam, its people, its places and what it has to offer the visitor... also think that who does not know the history is doomed to repeat it, that is why we decided to speak to you about the Museum of the Guerra of Vietnam.
Museum of Military History: Tank of the Vietnam War

Helicopter Vietnam War at the Museum of Military History
From our perspective, the most striking of the visit is the backyard, exhibiting tanks, ground vehicles, helicopters and aircraft used during the Vietnam War.
As of advice say that backyard where the aircraft and other machinery of war, are can be seen from the street Nguyễn Tri Phương, without having to pay the entrance fee.

Our next recommendation is the Museum of the vestiges of the Guerra of Vietnam in Ho Chi Minh City. It is located next to the Reunification Palace SaigonOn the street Vo Van Tan # 28.
Museum of War Remnants of Vietnam - Ho Chi Minh City
This museum in particular, is very focused on the atrocities and violations of human rights committed during the Vietnam war, especially on the effects of Agent Orange in the population (called by the Vietnamese people Orange poison). Photographs exhibited in this Museum may offend the sensibilities of many, and we do not recommend at all visit with children.
