Nice building. However, there's really nothing much to see. Dong25,000 to enter. You can get into the main building. You will simply walk around the palace and see displays from a glass window from the exterior.

Long line. Make sure you wear long pants and covered shoulders. It was a neat experience to see the preserved body of Ho Chi Minh. You have to walk by it pretty quickly though.

Of important historical interest, nice gardens- certainly not glamorous and a bit commercial. Very interesting to see the homes where Ho Chi Minh lived.
