It is always a nice thing to know and learn about the people and the stories behind their country. And being in Vietnam, we went to the War Remnants Museum where we can learn loads of history of Vietnam.
The War Remnants Museum exhibits relating to the Vietnam War and the first Indochina War involving the French colonialists. And in here one can witness loads of pictures and also the war items.
The museum comprises a series of themed rooms in several buildings, with period military equipment placed within a walled yard. The military equipment includes a UH-1 “Huey” helicopter, an F-5A fighter, a BLU-82 “Daisy Cutter” bomb, M48 Patton tank, an A-1 Skyraider attack bomber, and an A-37 Dragonfly attack bomber. There are a number of pieces of unexploded ordnance stored in the corner of the yard, with their charges and/or fuses removed.
And other exhibis includes graphic photography accompanied by a short text in English, Vietnamese and Japanese, covering the effects of Agent Orange and other chemical defoliant sprays, the use of napalm and phosphorus bombs, and war atrocities.
