Despite the fact that this museum is an adoration of the Vietnamese leader Ho Chi Minh I would say that visiting this museum gives you a good idea of how people see him nowadays.

If you are a foreigner, the museum is not attractive at all. All kinds of art with no / vietnamese explanation. Everything has to be big: it is a paradise for communists.

The museum is supposed to represent Ho Chi Minhs' transition over the years, and although it has great displays, we just had problems trying to decipher, in a chronological manner as well as a linguistic form, as all things are written in Vietnemese.

I found the museum very informative and interesting. The museum details the life of Ho Chi Minh with hundreds of displays and pictures with detailed captions in English and French. I don't think that there are many modern figures who have influenced a nation's history as much as he has and it is clear that he is revered by the... More

The museum was okay. No frills and kind of expensive to get in to. A whole museum for one person is just to much

This museum is total respect the Vietnamese people have for this man, may not be the most interesting one around but keep in mind the man as you visit. We found it worth while and can recommend it.

Excellent and informative, special displays of how the resistance and uprising happened, and the leadership displayed by Ho Chi Minh to the Vietnamese people. Well worth a visit when exploring the Ho Chi Minh Memorial area.

The whole area is very interesting and informs you of the history very well. Could be a bit more in English though/

A great place to get a feel for the vietnamese struggle, and good will. Some of the exhibits are a litttle dated now, but the spirit remains.
