Nice museum. Built by Soviet Union as a gift to Vietnamese people. It is completely dedicated to Ho Chi Minh, who was actually had a modest and simple life to devote himself to the independence of the country. So you can imagine that there are not many things to exhibit but at least you can feel the greatness of the... More

This was a very interesting place to visit.just to see the reverence that Ho Chi Min is held in.Every person is very quiet and respectful of this larger than life figure in Vietnamese history.

The first level of the museum had a really interesting account if Ho Chi Minh's early life, but gave hardly any information about what happened after he helped liberate Vietnam from French Imperialism. The museum included an impressive bronze statue of Ho Chi Minh that is worth taking a look at. I enjoyed the second level immensely, but it seemed... More

It could just be me but I found this place does not tell the story of history just by looking at it, unless the massive table and chairs with fruit and a bowl on it does it for you. There is lots of art but seams to modern and out there to truly depict what really happened during this time... More

Having half a day to do something of significance in Hanoi, I went to the museum. Take a taxi, not too expensive, and you will likely get there alive (amazing traffic scene!) I really did not have any particular expectations, but I entered to see what I could see. What ensued was a fascinating two hours. Starting a the beginning... More

This was a valuable part of our trip to see the Museum, house and gardens. Part of it is closed at the moment so unable to see his 'body' preserved for other generations (despite him requesting this not to happen). Busy at all times but made all the better for us having a guide organised by our hotel as part... More

Worth a visit and has some interesting information on ho chi minh and his life and the rise of the communist party and taking back the country from the french, japanese and US. But I found the display and decor and sculptures to be very unusual and make the second floor not a very welcoming place to visit.

The visit was part of a packaged tour around the Ho Chi Minh complex We had very little expectation of the museum but were quite intrigued by the history of Ho Chi Minh, his struggles and victories There are many photographs from his life with descriptions in English The first two floors are dedicated to his life The third floor...

The museum is very new and well laid out over a number of floors, you will need to take time looking at all the exhibits as it covers the life of Ho Chi Minh and gives you a further in site into the life of this great person, from his early years up until he passed away in 1969. Allow... More

I was a bit confused with the setting and the layout of the displays. Doesn't seem to have a theme to each area.
