Reflections on the War Remnants Museum

Ho Chi Minh City, back when it was known as Saigon, served as the base for American troops and other anti-communist forces during the Vietnam War. The decades-long conflict ended when North Vietnamese troops swept all the way south, overtaking the city with tanks as the last of the Americans departed via helicopter on April 30th, 1975.  Ho Chi Minh City is now a welcoming destination in a unified country, but no trip to Viet Nam is complete without a stop at the War Remnants Museum– a collection of American military equipment, propaganda posters, and journalist photos covering everything from the conflict’s origins to its lingering after-effects. Watch the video below to hear students reflect on their experience at the powerful museum.
