Mission Statement

To promote an understanding of the Vietnam Era, while honoring those who served.

For many Americans, Vietnamese, and others, the war in Vietnam was the defining event of their lives. It was a conflict that divided families and brought violence both to Vietnam and the United States. Whether in uniform or not, everyone who lived through this period had a Vietnam experience.

Despite its cultural and military importance, after more than 30 years, there is no national venue dedicated to examining the legacy of the Vietnam War. The time has come to examine and understand this most divisive period in our history, to allow for reflection, resolution, and healing.

From whatever vantage point one takes, on whichever side of the issues one stands, America's involvement in the Vietnam War must be seen as one of the most important events in recent history. The goal of The National Vietnam War Museum is to present an unbiased and balanced view of the events and participants of the Vietnam Era, and to allow visitors to form their own opinions based on facts.


The war in Vietnam was one of many flags (see flags at right). The National Vietnam War Museum will explore the varied impact on our allies, their peoples and their countries' futures.
