I'm not going to go in to the politics of my visit but suffice to say as a veteran of the war and considering this man represented my enemy......this visit was cathartic and I suggest you do it if your situation was the same as mine. Per all of the wonderful people we met in Viet Nam, everyone here was... More

We went to HCM Mausoleum and Museum in Nov 2014 and asked if the ticket price included entry into the Mausoleum and was told yes but when we exited the Museum we were told the Mausoleum was closed for renovations until December. Ummm.... total waste of money as we were not interested in the museum and walked straight through!

I think the locals have to recommend this BUT we were totally baffled by the experience! The exhibition about Ho and the Russians was pure propaganda and with very little information. I am still no wiser about the man, his life, politics and regard at home and abroad. The mausoleum was closed, the stilt house not accessible and much of... More

Not really sure why we did this except that our local VN friends were keen. I would say take a pass unless you were really really interested in a quick glimpse of a formaldehyde Uncle Ho. More interesting was the HCM residence nearby, and the museum.

Went without really knowing what to expect. When going in you have to line up quite far away from the actual mausoleum, you get directed through this random pathway I guess. The actual mausoleum is quite cold inside (for obvious reasons). It was interesting though, some locals were quite emotional

It seems that one isn't supposed to stay there too long! The military guards keep on rushing visitors through, maybe in fear that something "unexpected" is detected... No cameras and no cellular phones allowed...

You will stay in a long line to see a mummy for 2 seconds. Not worthed at all. Instead go to see the house he lived and worked! Take pictures of the Mausoleum and be happy!

The only reason to go here in the 2 months that it is closed is to say that you've been there. You can't get close to the building itself and from a distance it's just a concrete building.
