About
Wellcome to Ho Chi Minh Museum! President Ho Chi Minh - Vietnamese hero of national liberation and great man of culture. After he passed away on September 2nd 1969, in compliance with the Vietnamese people’s aspiration, the Communist Party of Vietnam’s Politburo decided to build the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum and the Ho Chi Minh Museum. After 20 years of preparing and building, the Ho Chi Minh Museum was inaugurated on September 2nd 1990, on the occasion of the 100th birthday of the President. Ho Chi Minh Museum has more than 170,000 decuments, objects and films about President Ho Chi Minh’s life and revolutionary work. They are invaluable assets of the Vietnamese people in educating patriotism, studying and following Ho Chi Minh’s thought and moral quallties; and encouraging the Vietnamese generations to succeed failthfully and excellently his great revolutionary work.

    A Must-Visit Historical Landmark in Hanoi
    A truly unique and enriching experience. It offers a chance to pay tribute to an esteemed leader while also delving into Vietnam's fascinating history. The solemnity of the location, combined with its architectural beauty, makes it an important cultural and historical site in Hanoi. I highly recommend including the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum in your itinerary when visiting Vietnam's capital

    Visited it after visiting the HCM Mausoleum
    Located near the HCM Mausoleum, this was the second attraction that we visited at the Complex. Entrance fee is 60,000 VND for foreigners, free to locals. There is huge statue at the center of the Entrance Area. Visitors pose for pictures here. Exhibits are on display on both sides of the Entrance area. Explanations of the exhibits in English are available. Some of the most memorable exhibits for me are the personal clothing and stuffs of HCM and the huge of picture showing him wearing this beige attire. Also memorable are some of his writings and quotes.

    A significant part of Vietnam's history
    Ho Chi Minh Museum is a wonderful place to visit. It is obviously dedicated to the Great Leader, "Uncle Ho", as he is affectionately known in Vietnam. There is a huge amount of culture and history in this architecturally beautiful monument.

    Wonderful
    Thought provoking and reflective museum to the life of HoChi Min. From beginning to death. Very much worth a morning or afternoon. Good to know that there’s a ’dress code’ - no shorts/flip flops although the guards took pity on me and did let me enter.

Absolutely dreadful!! First very badly signed for the entrance as you did not know if you were queuing for the museum or the mausoleum and no signs translated in English. Once we got to the museum it was only 40k VND. There were a lot of decorations/art if felt to fill the large space but little English translated documents. I expected to learn about Ho Chi Minh involvement in both wars against the French and Americans, his life from his birth place, his 30 years outside Vietnam, his time in France etc…I guess I will have to use Wikipedia. I have loved Vietnam 🇻🇳 for 3 weeks I just hated the museum worst ever!! Avoid and chill instead in a nice coffee shop 😁

The Ho Chi Minh Museum is located in Hanoi, Vietnam, and it's dedicated to the life and achievements of Ho Chi Minh, who was a key figure in Vietnam's struggle for independence and the founder of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam (North Vietnam). The museum exhibits various artifacts, documents, and memorabilia related to his life and the revolutionary movement in Vietnam. It offers visitors insight into Vietnam's history and the legacy of Ho Chi Minh. If you're planning to visit, it's a significant cultural and historical site in Hanoi.
