The spot taken by the War Rem­nants Mu­seum in Ho Chi Minh City, on a list of the world’s 10 best mu­se­ums.

Travel web­site TripAd­vi­sor re­cently com­piled the list, whose win­ners were de­ter­mined by an al­go­rithm that took into ac­count the quan­tity and qual­ity of re­views and rat­ings for mu­se­ums world­wide.

The War Rem­nants Mu­seum, one of the most-vis­ited sites in Ho Chi Minh and the only mu­seum in Asia to make the top 10, con­tains ex­hibits re­lat­ing to the Viet­nam War and the first In­dochina War in­volv­ing the French colo­nial­ists.

The Musée d’Or­say in Paris tops the list fol­lowed by the Na­tional 9/11 Me­mo­rial & Mu­seum and the Met­ro­pol­i­tan Mu­seum of Art in New York, the Bri­tish Mu­seum in Lon­don, and the Prado Na­tional Mu­seum in Madrid.
