Exchange programs

The War Remnants Museum has welcomed a large number of visitors, including over 70% of foreigners, 20% of domestic students; most of them have not experienced wars. It indicates that people all over the world, especially the youth, are very interested in the history of the Vietnam war, its consequences and post-war changes in Vietnam, the lives of war victims, etc. For many visitors, the information from the objects and photos displayed at the Museum has not satisfied their desire for learning. Therefore, they expect to meet war witnesses who are former political prisoners, veterans, and war victims.


The War Remnants Museum serves as a bridge to organize exchanges between visitors and war witnesses at the Museum, at the victims’ families or abroad. Participating in these exchanges, visitors have opportunities to get access to “living evidence” of crimes and consequences of the aggressive war, receive more information in an honest, objective, full and vivid way, and thereby better understand Vietnam and its people. Also, from touching stories, they can draw many lessons about the experience of living in all circumstances, the strong will to overcome difficulties, the great humanity and faithfulness, etc. On the side of the war witnesses, the visitors’ sharing, empathy, and admiration help them become more confident. Besides, they find themselves more useful in life, especially in educating the young generation about the consciousness of struggle against aggressive wars and peace protection.
