Vietnam War Remnants Museum-Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City)


The War Remnants Museum in Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City) features photographic exhibits and war memorabilia from the Vietnam War and the story is told from the point of view of the Communist North Vietnamese government. As I say in the video, it’s best not to eat before viewing some of the photographs, which can be quite graphic.

The museum originally opened in 1975 as the “Exhibition House for US and Puppet Crimes” located in the premises of the former United States Information Agency building. In 1990, the name changed to Exhibition House for Crimes of War and Aggression, dropping both “U.S.” and “Puppet.” In 1995, following the normalization of diplomatic relations with the United States and end of the US embargo from a year before, the references to “war crimes” and “aggression” were dropped from the museum’s title as well; it became the “War Remnants Museum” It is one of the most popular museums in Vietnam, attracting approximately half a million visitors every year. According to the museum’s own estimates, about two-thirds of these are foreigners.

  1. Ternyata viet nam menhargai peradaban,menhargai sosial kemanusian,menhargai kedaulatan bangsa dan negara,menhargai adat dan tradisi suku dan agama,menhargai sikap dan kerakter tehadap satu bangsa sertah menjaga kestabilan dalam negara viet nam…..saya salut dgn viet nam(keturunan radja palacca dee koning deer buogiesd) di negara serikat

  2. What about the atrocities carried out by the NVA and Vietcong in Hue during Tet in 1968 and after the final conquest of the South. Hypocrites if you ask me

  3. Lot of weapons most of those weapons were captured from the South Vietnamese army. The Vietcong were pretty smart, when it came to making weapons out of nothing, when I was in the Us Army in 1979 and was in A.I.T. At Fort Lee Virginia, in October of 1979, I was off duty one evening and went to the, Us Army,s Quartermaster museum I seen a homemade 20 Gage Shotgun That the Vietcong had made, from a piece of Galvanized Steel water didn't look too bad you could tell it was uncle was in the army 32 years and fought in Vietnam and three of my cousins on my mom's side of the family were Vietnam war army veterans.

  4. Financially and politically supported by China, the Vietnam War Remnants Museum is in fact one of Chinese Communist propaganda against America. The Vietnamese history is much more complicated than just the Vietnam War. According to historians, Vietnam has a history that is distinctively rich and evocative. For centuries, Vietnam had scrapped with the Chinese and the Mongols. The Vietnamese threw out the Chinese after almost 10 centuries of occupation and humiliated the most powerful Mongol Empire in history after defeating them 3 times. The French and the Americans were the last ones in a long line of invaders whom the Vietnamese repelled. It's no matter how long it took, all invaders would be vanquished. Despite the fact that the Chinese had occupied Vietnam for almost 1,000 years, the Chinese utterly failed to assimilate the Vietnamese. As a result, the Vietnam War Remnants Museum unfairly depicted the true history of Vietnam. It's just one of Chinese Communist propaganda against America.

  5. 3 million Vietnamese were killed, among them 2 million civilian. That made me laugh. You know Americans were civilians too?

  6. You really should have shown the graphic photos. It shows just how awful war is. I cried when I saw them and took pictures. The government hides so much from us.

  7. Seem like I gust left Saigon in 1968
    Vietnam nam is a beautiful country ,too bad the DRATS cut the funds
    We lost 55,00 plus now the communist has control
    Sad sad sad are the Vietnamese truly free

  8. Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Somali, North Korea, Syria, Panama… etc etc need such left behind Veteran's gear too… They all have one veteran in common that brought HAVOC & DEATH to their countries.

  9. Was there last week. Very much given from the communist Vietnamese side but very very sad and disturbing as well. The defoliant dioxins Agent Orange use was disgraceful and continues to destroy lives. No disrespect at all on the young Americans who served their country with distinction but like all wars the young service people and civilians are the pawns of very rich men who only get richer

  10. Went there a few years ago. Every country seems to have a war museum, the war did happen, mainly stuff left over and abandoned on show. Interesting, no more no less.

  11. Top left pistol at 2:58 appears to be a handmade Vietnamese copy of an m1911a1, but it may just be because the museum has made some "modifications" to make the pistol "safe" for public display.

  12. I use to go every time I was in Saigon, the was a guillotine that was mobile left by the French, that they would take from town to town and execute trouble makers . Sometimes they drag it out sometimes not.

  13. As a Vietnam Veteran, I can only say that the next time, we send the politicians and their children first. I understand that Ho Chih Minh wrote multiple letters to the US President requesting help in reuniting his country. Those letters expressed his respect for the US Constitution. Apparently, the CIA intercepted those letters and never gave then to the President. Thereby, protecting the profits for the military industrial complex which were paid for with 58,262 American lives. The Deep State is still at it to this day.

  14. Every politician during that time period should have been forced to have been on the front lines and fight. Then give the real estate back after it was taken. If this country would have been turned loose over there it would have been a different out come. Hats off to all that served.
