Vuc Quanh Outdoor War Museum
Vuc Quanh Outdoor War Museum information
This quirky outdoor museum, located 7km out of Dong Hoi, is a personal effort by one man – Mr Lien – to remember the civilian war experience in Quang Binh province. His approach: build a replica village for his personal collection of war relics and memorabilia.
The village consists of thatched huts scattered haphazardly along a maze of dirt paths and trenches. Each hut reproduces some aspect of village life: farmhouse, schoolroom, hospital or crèche. You can view poignant personal items as well as military relics, including American bomb casings and intrusion detectors and a reproduction of a letter from Ho Chi Minh, commending the province for shooting down more than 100 American warplanes.
To get to the museum, follow Ð Le Loi to the end, turn left and continue for just over 1km. At the signs for chao sang bun be, turn right and proceed for another kilometre. Alternatively, enquire at A2Z about tours here.
