Very confronting with the effects of the war. Highly recommend a visit to this museum to help understand the effect of the war on the country. Suitable for all family members but some of the exhibits might need to explained to younger family members.

War Remnants is a must visit. My top tip is to start your visit at the top floor at Exhibit Number 1- this might seem obvious but it isn’t made clear at the Museum and the layout is not clear. This is even more important...More
