Before going to Vietnam I didn't know much about their history. This dedication to Ho Chi Minh is breath taking. There are a number of levels within the building, personal items and dedications to Ho Chi Minh from all over the world. I felt so connected when seeing correspondence from NZ there.

If you enjoy your museums specifically focusing on parts of history then this is your place. The museum does close at 11:30am so beware!

Great insight into Vietnam history. It was a pleasant surprise. It helped fill in the gaps for westerners visiting Vietnam. Our peregrine tour consisted of Irish, USA, Aussies and Kiwis. We heard about the other side of Vietnam. Tip : allow a good length of time to see this museum, make sure you have a tour guide

My wife and I visited the Ho Chi Minh museum on a Friday afternoon in mid-January. Entry was 40,000 dong per person ($1.78 or 1.65 Euro). This museum can be visited at the same time as the nearby Presidential Palace, the Mausoleum of Ho Chi Minh, and Ho Chi Minh's "house on stilts" (separate admission price for Presidential Palace area...

We were too late for the mausoleum so thought we'd explore this museum on good ol' Ho. (It does close for lunch though - beware!) Really it's more of an emotional exhibition and historical "interpretation" than a museum in the traditional sense. It begins with pretty normal stuff (state-approved, of course) about Ho Chi Minh and his life, but towards... More

Definitely would have understood more with a guide, but we had a ton of fun trying to interpret the various symbolic exhibits. They seem so random. We kind of ignored a bunch of the documents for lack of English and focused on the big things. The two special exhibits for the current congresses or something were interesting.
