First off all: we must pass thought the security and they'll keep your bags and only give it back in the end Then you almost have to march to get to the mausoleum, and you're inside there there are military guards pushing you to move faster. When I tried to leave I had a great surprise... The entrance is free!... More

Worth a look, but there was a line up around the block, being such a hot and humid day and then only seeing the mausoleum for around 30 secs was a bit disappointing.

Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum is a wonderful structure. The people of Hanoi still love Ho Chi Minh and will talk about him continuously. In their mind he is the only one they love.

Hard to see what the architects had in mind here, looks nothing like a Lotus flower. Much more interesting was the self guided tour around Ho Chi Minh's private apartments.

Not want to come because I visited Hanoi many times. However, as the forcing of my wife, I came here. Unlucky, it is on Sunday, so so busy with very long line in the crazy hot weather. Nothing special and attractive, will not comeback anymore.

Visited on a Saturday morning. The queue was horrendous when we first arrived, many of groups of school children so our tour guide decided to take us to the Temple of Literature first and come back later in the morning when the queues had died down. When we returned later in the morning the queue was a lot better and... More

I went in their 70th independency anniversary and I had to move with the crowd in the line and nobody could stand inside more than a few seconds. In total not much to see. Also, in the museum next to the mausoleum majority of the label were in Vietnamese.

If you want to learn some historical information about Ho Chi Minh, this is an interesting site. You can view his entombed body in a glass casket, in a highly guarded room. This is a site which many Vietnamese go to, in addition to tourists, so plan on spending time in line. The good thing is that they have the... More

No English translations for exhibits. Consisting of 3 floors, the 1st floor is basically security check, 2nd floor are some Vietnamese independence exhibits with no English wordings, won't take you more than 10 min. the 3rd floor is the status of Mr Ho Chih Min and some other cultural exhibits like weaving machine, guns used in war etc..
