A must see attraction in Hanoi, impressive. Long lines and a very fast moving line that goes by Ho Chi Minh's body.

You walk quickly and silently through the corridors and have little chance to actually look at the preserved body and certainly no photo allowed.

I joined Vietnamese people including many school classes to wait in a long line to file past Ho Chi Minh's preserved body. Worth doing if you enjoy people watching (I am solo travelling and have nobody with whom to chat). Interesting to watch the immaculately attired soldiers patrol the area around the mausoleum and solemnly guard the body. Uncle Ho... More

Not much here for a tourist, certainly not something I would wait in a long line to visit again. Nice to see locals paying their respects but that rather than the building is the main reason to make the trip.

As expected the visit to the Ho Chi Min Mausoleum presented very little interest and was very crowded. This was a propaganda tour: fortunately, the body was not visible that day. Poor man, he wanted to be incinerated and his body is exhibited against his will! The only interest was the view of the adjacent garden which is magnificent with... More

We were excited to visit the mausoleum but when we got there we went through security who allowed us to keep our bottled water as we walked through the site a member of staff shouted at us and marched us back to the security office demanding to know what we were doing and then stated no water. We queued up... More

This is one of those unique experiences not to be missed.The figure responsible for the reunification of Vietnam preserved under glass. Creepy? Yes. Strange? Yes. Should you go. Absolutely

a highly informative museum... left me feeling inspired by the life of Ho Chi Min! His links with Europe and the socialist parties there as well as with the Art of the time..

Be prepared to wait in a long line to view Uncle Ho in his final resting place. It is claimed they send him to Russia every year for maintenance. Who knows?

The lineup to visit inside the mausoleum was too long therefore we skipped it, but we visited all the surrounding grounds. The mausoleum is intimidating, majestic, has an overpowering aura, etc. It is definitely a must see, whether you visit inside or not.
