Ho Chi Minh war museum History

Originally, this area was Cambodian territory, but the king of this country allowed Vietnamese people to settle in, so the name of this area was called Saigon, a Vietnamese pronunciation. France occupied the south and made this city the center, calling it Saigon abroad as well. The Vietnamese government opened the museum in 1975 to commemorate the horrors and brutality of the Vietnam War. At first, it was the US war crimes museum for China’s war crimes. But Many American & Chinese felt uncomfrotable. So the. name changed into this name.

Ho Chi Minh War museum ticket Price

Admission to the Cambodia Museum is about $10. The Ho Chi Minh War Museum costs less than $2. Museums in other Southeast Asian countries have different prices for foreigners and locals. Vietnam applies the same price to everyone. I recommend the museum’s audio guide. This is very helpful in understanding the Vietnam War in detail. Audio guides cost around $5 or less. If you have earphones, 2 people can listen. It supports more than 10 languages including English, Chinese, French and Japanese. This is the visiting this museum review with eng, ch, Jp subtitles. If you were a first time visitor, it would be helpful.

Biz Hour

The Ho Chi Minh War Museum is open Monday through Sunday. Its operating hours are from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. I recommend visiting early in the morning. If you visit early in the morning, it’s good because there are fewer people and it’s less hot while you are on the way of it.

Why I recommend to visit ?

Most of us have understood the Vietnam War through materials explained by the Western media and the United States. If you go here, you can see the Vietnam War explained by the goverment of Hanoi, North Vietnam. You can deeply experience how brutal and cruel the war caused by humans. Also, We could find great war correspondents who sacrificed his life to make world to know the reality of this war. This place makes us to face the of human’s hypocrisy.

This structure consists of three floors. The main exhibits are displayed on the first and second floors. The first floor is where various events are held. This place is unique, and it is designed to be viewed from the third floor. It seems that people are allowed to watch from the 3rd floor to prevent crowding.
