Ho Chi Minh City Museums & Attractions

Reunification Palace
106 Nguyen Du, District 1, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
Hours: 7:30-11:00 am, 1:00-4:00 pm
This was formerly the Presidential Palace of the Republic of South Vietnam, the site where South Vietnam finally capitulated to the North on April 30, 1975. Having underwent extensive renovations and only re-opened this June, the palace is preserved almost exactly how it was in 1975; visitors can tour the President’s office, cabinet room, bomb shelters, war rooms, secret tunnels and more.

Ho Chi Minh City Museum
65 Ly Tu Trong Street, District 1,  Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
Hours: 8:00 am-4:00 pm
Located in a late, nineteenth century estate of French design, the Ho Chi Minh City museum houses two floors of history, from pre-historic Vietnam to the Vietnam War (or the Resistance War Against the Americans to Save the Nation, as they refer to it). Prominently, the museum hosts a collection of captured American aircraft and tanks.

War Remnants Museum
28 Vo Van Tan, District 3, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
Hours: 7:30-11:45am, 1:30-4:45pm
The museum, formerly known as the “Exhibition House of American War Crimes,” is a disturbing look at the atrocities committed during the Vietnam War. Be prepared for a heavy dose of propaganda and revisionism. The museum features American tanks, aircraft and weaponry, as well as very graphic, disturbing pictures of war casualties, jars of still-born foetuses allegedly killed by Agent Orange and pictures of the lives of victims. Do not go if you are easily disturbed.
