A very interesting area but we went without our guide so probably didn't get the most out of it. Ceremonial guards aren't the friendliest but that's ok. Ho Chi Minh Museum was one of the strangest museums we have been to - history crossed with Art deco ! All worth a visit.

The Museum is very, very nice, I met a lot of people at the ticket Office and inside and all of them super nice and friendly, they did everything for us.

It was ok. Best part was all of the military, walk this way, drop your arms, no hands in pockets...what a hardship for young Americans with their stupid caps. Funny just to watch them try to follow rules,epic fail.

Go see the Mosoleum, pagoda, and this place as soon as it opens in the morning to avoid all the tourists. Take a look at real buildings and structures used by Ho Chi Minh and others

A lovely hour spent touring both Ho's official residence and the simple house in the grounds where he lived throughout the War. Although there were inevitably many tourists there (a large number of whom were Vietnamese) it was very well organised and everyone had a chance to see and enjoy it all.

The huge complex include Presidential Palace, Politburo meeting room, old used cars of president, House no. 54 , Buddha trees, Cypress tree , President Ho Chi Minh... More

it is best to do this attraction with a proper guide otherwise you would have to wait in a very long queue. After visiting the Mausoleum we kept on going along the path and went to see where Uncle Ho used to live.

The delightful Oriental architecture set amongst lakes and trees must have been a great tonic for Ho Chi Minh if he ever had a down day. He really lived simply, and this place was an education as well as a refreshing 45 minute tour.

we are from venezuela but we admire Ho Chi Minh president so much that we choose his palace historical site as the first place we come to Vietnam. the palace has a special structure and it is surrounded by others historical site, too. in his private house, every thing is simple and well- protected. it is great.
