We went into the museum as it was very hot outside and it being National day of independence thought it would be good to get some further information on Vietnam's history. I must agree with many of the reviews here that the museum is confusing and not very informative. Yes there are lots of displays and plenty of English translations... More

If you want to see some of of the historical glimpses of the Vietnam, you should visit this place. Located very nesr to Ho Chi Minh Memorial, you can see many belongings of this heroic leader.

I was excited about going here, but the museum was very poor. The building is stunning, as well as a statue of the great man himself. But exhibits are scarce, the route confusing, and English explanations non-existstant.

I am sure there is a Ho Chi Minh Museum in every city in Vietnam. This museum is of massive proportions and the building is impressive in itself. However the displays need work and the information presented is really for an aficionado of Ho Chi Minh and the revolution. Being part of "Ba Dinh square" along with the Mausoleum, one... More

I was really hoping to learn a bit about Ho Chi Minh and why he is so revered by the Vietnamese people, so you'd think the Ho Chi Minh museum would be the place to go right? Wrong! The first exhibit we came across was a collection of articles and pictures entirely in vietnamese. It seemed to be about communist... More

The Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum was interesting but the museum itsef was not a big story. It was more a communist propaganda than a deep introduction of the life of Ho Chi Minh.

This is one of the highlights of my trip in Vietnam 'cause it's so boring and was such a waste of time. From this point, I stopped buying tour from local agency.

I entered this museum knowing nothing about Ho Chi Minh. I left knowing less. From what I understood, it was communist propaganda in the shape of abstract art exhibitions.
