"To fully understand the impact of the exhibits at the War Remnants Museum, I recommend taking a moment to speak with the veteran guides who offer firsthand accounts of the war, providing invaluable insight and personal stories that bring history to life. Additionally, be prepared for an emotional visit, as the graphic images and displays can be intense and thought-provoking, so take your time to process and reflect on the powerful narratives presented."
