Established in 1975, the War Remnants Museum on 28 Vo Van Tan Street in District 3 in Ho Chi Minh City displays documents, photos and artifacts which are shocking evidence of atrocities committed by foreign aggressors during Vietnam's two wars.

Exhibits include collection of American weapons; model of the notorious tiger cages where Vietnamese revolutionaries were kept; photographs that illustrate the effect of Agent Orange and other chemical defoliant sprays, napalm and phosphorus bombs on the Vietnamese people and land.

The War Remnants Museum receives about 500,000-700,000 local and international visitors each year.

On the other hand, Vietnam Museum of Ethnology in Hanoi was ranked 6th among the most attractive museums in Asia and received a Certificate of Excellence from TripAdvisor. The Museum received 500 votes for excellence, 357 votes for very good, and most attractive destination in Hanoi by visitors.
