The museum was very well done and I loved the rooms that showed the French art movement. Worth the time spent at this museum.

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

Easily the most bizarre and disorienting museum I have ever seen. Learned pretty much nothing, but cool and enjoyable to see

Museum is situated near the mausoleum and contains the life story of ho chi Minh, well laid out with English descriptions, worth investing an hour here to learn a bit more about his life

The museum is situated near the Ba Dinh Square & Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum. The entrance fee is 25.000 VND for foreigners and it's free for the Vietnamese. I felt that the visit to this museum was very educational. We (my husband and I) had a local guide that explains many things about the exhibits that were on display. We... More

The exhibits do not feature english translations which is a little unfortunate but there are many visual stimulations to look at - and I mean stimulations in that, they are particularly odd and of a...

It is less about telling the story of Ho Chi Minh's life in chronological order, more a shrine of sorts to him for people who already know about him. A guide would be a great investment here if...
