Relive a Turning Point in History Through a Secret Underground Arsenal

The Tet Offensive of 1968, where a ragtag group of Vietnamese guerrillas defeated the incomparable might of the US armed forces and sent their foes scrambling for the last helicopter out of Saigon, was a momentous point in history whose reverberations were felt for decades. And they can be felt most keenly with a trip to this secret, specially built basement in Saigon that held over two tons of armaments which the guerrillas used for their final, fateful storming of the US Embassy. The history of the basement is a story in itself, for it was owned by a tailor whose children were inspired by his story and grew up to play a major part in opening it to visitors and assembling many of its artefacts and exhibits.
