A stunningly presented museum that gives an insight into the philosophy and development of modern Vietnam. If you don't already have a working knowledge it can be a little confusing so read ahead!

Beautifully laid out museum is spoilt by not having a logical story that goes with it. Obviously a large amount has been spent here on the collections, so why no story?? You must know this, there are numerous comments on this aspect!! Time to pick your game up here and present a truly professional display because we want to be... More

Nice furnished and beautiful decorated museum. There was a nice collection of gifts that were given to Bac Ho from international friends and other countries. What it lacked was personal materials since this museum was dedicated to Bac Ho (Ho Chi Minh). There weren't many materials related to Bac Ho through out his life, i.e.: things he wore, used, slices... More

The first floor is full of photographs and information on Ho Chi Minh. The second and third floors take you through Ho Chi Minh's life set out by recreating different periods in an artistic way. I enjoyed strolling through the 2nd and 3rd floors best.

We were taken to this museum by a taxi driver when trying to get to the war museum. It was an interesting experience, a lot of he exhibits showed Vietnamese propaganda and anti china messages. We were a bit confused because a lot of the exhibits and photographs of Ho Chi Minh were dated from the 40s and 50s during... More

The Ho Chi Minh museum is located in a large building right behind the mausoleum and next to the one pillar pagoda. The museum is a tribute to the country’s father – and his revolutionary cause. It opened in 19th May, 1990 on the occasion of 100th birth anniversary of Ho Chi Minh. The museum is built in the shape... More
