Very humbling experience. It's hard to imagine how awful it must of been for the poor people of My Lai back on that day in 1968.

So so sad..

I recommend that if you’re an English speaker you watch remembering My Lia parts one and two before you come. It’s worth coming to pay your respects. It’s good to keep this place in our memories and not forget.

The site of this brutal, unnecessary massacre is well-preserved for sober reflection. The museum has an excellent and surprising number of photographs from the terrible day. The dioramas and interpretive signs are well done. Everybody should visit this site.

The My Son vestige site displays the remnants of the village that was the centre of the My Lai Massacre. It is peaceful and respectful. The names and ages on headstones of those who were killed at the remnants of each house is quite moving. The whole site is a simple reminder of that atrocity.
The Museum itself has some photos. The story told is understandedly from the Vietnamese perspective. Many I had already seen at the War Remnants Museum.
If you are in the area it is worth visiting.

This is one of the most moving visits to a museum I have ever visited. The photos are graphic and horrendous. It's as if you can feel the ghosts of the past still living here. I had tears from watching and listening to the video that is in many languages. How anyone could murder innocent people of all ages is beyond me. It truely showed me the other side of the Vietnam war. I will never forget what I saw and my love for the Vietnamese people has grown more stronger and deeper. They are beautiful and friendly culture.

I visited this museum on 19 June 2019 in the late afternoon. While walking through the exhibition at the main museum building, I was shocked to see all those photographs. This museum made me feel very very sad about this tragic event. The site, of course, makes you appreciate "peace". I would recommend that one prepare well before visiting this site. P.S. It would be better if they could use some sketched picture/paintings instead of real photographs of those children & people.

Visited with a tour group that included Vietnam War Veterans. The value of visiting this site is to see and walk the area and view some original building and topography at the massacre site. Some lives were saved by the landing and intervention of an Army helicopter piloted by WO1 Hugh Thompson Jr., and two crew members, Glenn Andreotta and Lawrence Colburn. This site is worth a visit and not over-done, minimum propaganda. This area had been reported as not "friendly" to the US and South Vietnam war effort--not making excuses or condoning what happened. A tragic event during a very tough, controversial war, and should not be forgotten. Not only was the mistreatment of civilians and the massacre terrible but the subsequent cover-up made this much worse. There is a large parking lot and the area is easy to walk around. There were very few visitors when our group of 20 was there so we could take our time and reflect on what happened.

Possibly the highlight of my trip to the peninsular where I went to fill the hole in my knowledge of Indo-China. We hired a car and driver who had difficulty finding the site (from Hoi An), no thanks to GPS nor one or two locals who wouldn't direct.

We were naively surprised to find the site on the edge of town, entry via a large open gateway. Where were all the palm trees and forest shown in the western media ? As we entered the good-sized car park, two coaches were getting ready to depart. We had the place more or less to ourselves (4) and were so grateful for it. We were able to take in something of the enormity of what had happened here and its impact on the Vietnam War with the US in the fullness of time.

The guides had gone off after a busy morning so we had to show ourselves around, starting with a 20 min video. This, together with excellent captions and photos throughout the museum helped explain all. We then had a slow wander around the grounds: a small fraction of the original village site, now with some of the cottages marked out and set up as working homes, alongside rows of graves belonging to single families. A few of the massacred mulltiple generation families were laid to rest on site. The whole area is rather barren and definitely nothing like it would have been at the time. This, together with the cleverly moulded "footprints and pawprints" in the paths, provided the impressioin of fear and desperation.

Refreshment on site is minimal so go with lots of water and snacks.

The fields of the village are now bounded by hedges, and the foundations of the houses have been preserved. A museum lists the 500 victims, and has many photos showing the carnage. But what I found most moving was a small, simple traditional building outback with an altar where relatives can offer joss sticks and other gifts to the victims.
