Statue set in a smallish park. In an area where’s there’s plenty of attractions so in that respect worth seeing if passing by.

The park is small but well manicured for the most part. Statue is nothing to write home about. One of the few places in world where there's still a tribute to this dictator of days past. You can see it when driving by the military museum, or stopping at the museum. Shouldn't be the singular purpose of a trip to the area though. There are cabs right across the street at the military museum though, so it's easy to get around (warning: avoid the local cabs with rigged meters, stick with Grab, Vinasun and Mai Linh).

This statue of Lenin stands in a small park opposite the Vietnam History Military Museum. Worth a stop if you are in the area.

This statue occupies a small triangular garden and perhaps synonymous with how history has moved on. Lenin at one time a master for the communist cause looks down forlorn and perhaps struggles for relevance as the signs of capitalism rumble past him.
There were no signs of worship here as was seen at every statue and reference to Ho Chi Minh. Maybe future generations will see it finally removed in time to come.
The park area is nicely kept, clean but small. This may consume about 20 minutes of your time just to say you were there.

A big statue in the middle of a small park, as a proclamation for communism.

Worth a look if you are there, and is a hop on hop off bus stop, but not worth it alone, unless you are on some type of pilgramige.

Sad enough lots of statues are being removed world wide onlybfor cureentlybprevailing winds, for political correct reasons and the sad and often biased rewriting of history. No doubt lenin was a great man at the time in history , better than most current so called leaders( poor world) and anyway the statue in the park looks good, luckily several places still keep the monuments as part of the past as it happens. Hamoi please keep lenin in the park! We

Lenit Statute is located in central Hanoi in the park with the same name and dedicated to the Russian socialist leader whose ideology is still the practice in Vietnam politics. The statue itself is not very significant, so if you are passing by or taking a break at the park you can have a glance at it, otherwise I would not bother to go there just for the statue

This monument no doubt signifies the close relationship between Vietnam and the former Soviet Union.

Not so common to see statues of Lenin these days as so many have been pulled down. A fitting tribute to an elder statesman regardless of politics.

Happened to walk through the associated park and saw the Lenin Statue. Yes, the father of the communist movement but, hardly something to make a trip to see. If you are there, take a look but, don't put it on your must see trip agenda.

Well, it is a pretty little park with a statue of Lenin. I understand the communist link but it doesn’t make or break the Park. Nice to have green spaces around a large city for families to get out to for a break.
