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.
