Become part of the crew, as Patriots Point brings the history of the Vietnam War to life in this fully immersive 2 ½ acre exhibit that brings Marine officers to life through holograms in an exciting 3-D production.
Set in a "Brown Water Navy" support base and a U.S. Marine Corps artillery fire base during the Tet Offensive and the Battle of Khe Sanh in 1968.
The exhibit features more than a dozen components that simulate life during wartime:
The Vietnam Experience Exhibit also serves as a place for the two million Vietnam veterans in the United States to reflect and reconnect with their experiences during their years of service.
Exciting new additions have been added to the Quonset Hut. Experience the mini-theater located inside a replica of a Saigon street corner, climb inside the M151 Jeep, and see an authentic 17 ft. Viet Cong Sampan. Plan your visit today to see it all for yourself!
Construction of the exhibit was made possible by contributions from Charleston County Council, Bennett Hospitality and the Charleston Harbor Benefactors Society.
