War Remnants Museum Vietnam

I recently visited The War Remnants Museum in Saigon.
It was a very interesting visit as you saw the War from the other side but it did get a bit much hearing as to how the Vietnamese were the innocent victims of the Soviets, Chinese and the evil Americans. I have read quite a bit about the conflict so have my own opinions which my guide seemed a bit surprised when I made an observation or two (very respectfully of course).

I thought the colour schemes were a bit off on the Airplanes until I checked the markings. These were usually intact so I guess the paint is original and must have faded to the colours you see them now. The Tanks were in good condition but I was a bit disappointed in the small numbers of vehicles on display. We were only in town for two days and were rushed around by our guide so I suppose that there must be other displays around.

Sometimes my Mac wont load photos properly.
